Create a body appreciation manifesto
I listened to a fabulous podcast yesterday called Accidental Creative, where Todd Henry discusses the importance of having a personal manifesto for guiding decisions in a creative business and life.
When it comes to supporting body image, you could adapt this into a body appreciation manifesto ~ a set of guiding principles to honour, celebrate and protect your body.
a few tenets came to mind. For example:
~ never put yourself down
~ don't compare to others
~ thank your body (for the work your body does each day)
~ acknowledge imperfection (as a normal part of life)
~ support your body (through listening and being kind)
This will be the beginning of my own personal body appreciation manifesto. Do any of these resonate for you? What would your body appreciation manifesto be?
