what you think about yourself molds your entire self-image. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
if you're constantly saying negative things about your body or punishing yourself for enjoying good food or lounging on the couch binge-watching netflix when you already work your *** off, those thoughts manifest into something dangerous. you'll start to think that you'll never be good enough. that you'll never be pretty enough unless you lose 15 pounds. you''ll actually believe that you're not worthy of being loved and happy. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
but you need to stop lying to yourself. you have to change your way of thinking if you want to be happier. it's not an easy process, but that doesn't mean it can never get done. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
cut off things and people that are bad for you. meditate for 10-20 minutes a day. keep a gratitude journal. treat your body like you would treat your best friend or a loved family member. keep a record of all of the good, happy things that happen every day. exercise. make time for yourself. nourish your body by eating delicious food and drinking plenty of water. stay off the scale. stop waiting to reach your goal to enjoy your body and yourself. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
think about why loving yourself is really important to you. make time for yourself. you are loved, you are beautiful, and you deserve every good thing that comes your way. ⠀
