One of the most common things women have a hard time doing is completely loving their bodies. Try and let that go and do your best to stop focusing on your own negative body image issues today for National Love Your Body Day. The driving force behind such a fabulous day is the National Organization for Women Foundation (a.k.a. NOW), which encourages all women to:
Make a pact with yourself to treat your body with respect, and do things to promote positive body image. For example, try a new physical activity just for fun, not to lose weight. Stop weighing yourself, and change your goal from weight loss to improving your health.
So let's work on loving our bodies today and every day that follows. I've grown to love my body because of the amazing things it does and in turn, lets me do. From creating my two healthy daughters to taking me through my first triathlon, I've truly come to appreciate my body for its inherent intelligence and never-ending strength. Why do you love your body? Share the love in the comments section below.
