Negativity Stats

Sometimes we can be our own worst enemy.....

Recent research conducted for new eating disorder charity The Succeed Foundation, in England found that 30% of women would trade at least one year of their life to achieve their ideal body weight and shape. 93% of the women surveyed reported that they had had negative thoughts about their appearance during the past week. 31% had negative thoughts several times a day.

What good do those negative thoughts do? Is hating your body going to make it magically change? Nope. Is thinking negative thoughts about your appearance going to make you more attractive? Not at all. In fact they often turn right around and bite you in the back, as they make you seem insecure, unsure, and not confident.

So let's reshape that inner dialogue.

What is one thing you love about yourself today?
repeat after me: I am so absolutely incredibly extraordinary

How often do you have negative thoughts about your body? What will you do this week to reshape that inner dialogue?
