Love Your Body

So yesterday was Love Your Body Day. NOW (National Organization for Women) declares a day in October as Love Your Body Day.  Check out this quiz and see how you do...

I'm always so hard on myself and my sense of worth is directly related to how I feel about my body. So I decided that I would list some reasons to LOVE my body instead of endlessly focusing on it's flaws.

Reasons to LOVE my body-
  1. It is still working after all the abuse I dish out!
  2. I have all limbs and faculties in place!
  3. I have a nice smile
  4. I have a great and inviting laugh (I am told you can't help laughing when I laugh)
  5. My muscles gain strength easily
  6. At peak, I have a great hourglass shape. Even under the fluff its there though, so I'm including it!
  7. I have a keen and discerning sense of smell.
  8. I have nice hair.
  9. I have attractive hands.
  10. My body constantly regenerates- out with the old dying cells and in with the new! Its amazing what our bodies do!
This was harder than I initially thought it would be. My mind threw out a bunch of negatives immediately because those things are practiced and said over and over. I am committing to saying 3 positive things about my body each day. I certainly have less desirable things happening with my body right now, but I will make it a practice each day to focus on the good things and be thankful!
