10 Positive Things to Say To Yourself

Often times we, as women, tend to focus on the negative especially when it comes to our bodies. We can talk ourselves down with negative self-talk - ohh those little internal demons are so critical. In an effort to help end this movement and help women start talking nicer to themselves, has created a cute list of ten things you should definitely say to yourself more often:

  1. Less is not more, baby.
  2. I will love my flaws, if not for me, then for my extremely impressionable daughter/little sister/niece.
  3. Walk away slowly so everyone can enjoy the view.
  4. It’s clothes’ job to fit my body, not the other way around.
  5. Don’t turn down chocolate! It’s full of those anti-oxi-thingies.
  6. He loves that, and those, and especially these. Lucky dog.
  7. Machu Picchu/intermediate pole dancing/20 stairs with a stroller…whatever—these thighs can handle it.
  8. Hungry? Eat something. Makes sense, right?
  9. There’s nothing wrong here that a great pair of jeans can’t fix.
  10. Well done.

These are great! But at the same time it makes me sad to think we need lists like this to help us develop/re-develop a positive self image.
