How to Have a Confident Body Image

Body image anxiety are few things new. For hundreds of years for women who live been bombarded with images of fashionable bodies and the ways to achieve them. Victorian women valued a small waist and a curvaceous bottom; whereas being very slim with legs on show, epitomised the Sixties. Today we've considerable choice and freedom of expression. It is rarely been easier to find fashion that matches our colouring, shape and size. Yet more than ever women are anxious in regards to the way they look.

Now how can we learn to accept, otherwise love, our body?

Research by Professor Nichola Rumsey, (University from the West of England) implies that children as young as five can display understanding of body image judgments. By seven they may be beginning to show body dissatisfaction and by adulthood, 90% of British women have body image anxiety. This is apparently a lifelong issue as many women in their 80's remain concerned about the way their bodies look.

Experts always debate the factors which may have led us to get this focus on looks. Meanwhile the effects of body image anxiety on women, in terms of stress, eating disorders as well as depression, increases. So in the world where many models and celebrities certainly are a size zero how would you stay body positive?

"When I had been growing up there wasn't one woman during my environment who I heard saying something loving toward their body. Everything was negative, negative, negative. I accept how I am and make good what I have been given. This is exactly why I only talk positively about my figure in front of my daughter." Kate Winslet

12 ways to love and accept your body:

1. Get new role models that you can actually imitate. Choose them for reasons other than appearance such as the work they do ethic, generosity or determination.

2. Avoid fashion magazines which contain unrealistic versions of the items celebrities and models actually seem like.

3. Avoid negative self-talk concerning your body. Start focusing about the parts you do like.

4. Purchase as your best friend. You wouldn't call your best friend names such as 'fat' or 'wrinkly' so do not do it to yourself.

5. Don't compare yourself to others. You'll often be putting someone down, either yourself or the other person. Both may bad effect on your self-esteem.

6. Eat balanced meals, get moderate exercise and become outside more.

7. Dispose of the scales. They may be just a number and never a measure of your self-worth. If you wish to measure something, measure your generosity, number of friends, education or determination.

8. List exactly what you like about your appearance. You might find this tricky at first, but with practice, whenever you look in the mirror you'll only begin to see the positives.

9. Whenever you receive a compliment respond with a sincere 'Thank You' then go on it to heart and believe it.

10. Stop trying to achieve your perfect body. It is really an unattainable goal that may only make you feel like a disappointment or a failure. If you wish to lose weight set your hair a realistic goal it is possible to maintain.

11. Understand that you're not alone in feeling this way. Many other women are can not be happy with the way they look. Yet it's a goal you can achieve.

12. Remember you're an exceptional and beautiful individual and then any 'flaws' you have are really just explanations why you are unique.
