how to be body confident

Body confidence doesn’t come from being slim, or beautiful, and body confidence definitely isn’t something all of us feel all of the time, no matter how body positive we may be. It’s completely fine if you don’t feel body confident right now, so don’t worry about comparing yourself and your own body confidence journey to that of other people you might see on Instagram or in the gym.

Body confidence comes from respecting what you’ve been given, what you’ve built, and what your body can do – but this doesn’t come overnight. There are things we can all do to make ourselves feel more body confident each day, and what works for me may not work for you.  I’m going to share five ways that make me feel more body confident that you can do right now to work towards being body confident.

It’s worth noting that none of these things will make you look any different to other people – and you probably won’t see the difference in the mirror, either. These are things that make me feel great both inside and out. Read on to find out the things I do to work towards becoming a bad-ass body confident babe.

beach body ready?

Yesterday I was in London, and it was difficult to miss the bright yellow adverts from Protein World around the city. I was so busy concentrating on getting the right tube they disappeared into the rest of the advertising clutter for me, so it wasn’t until I settled with my coffee this morning to catch up with Twitter that I saw the backlash and the company’s terrible response to them.

I find it difficult being involved in health and fitness whilst also promoting body positivity. I firmly believe that you should be proud of what your body can DO and the non-aesthetic targets you’ve hit; however, working out and eating well also changes how your body looks, and I’d be lying if I said that wasn’t something I cared about, even if it isn’t my primary concern. The fitness industry thrives by target our worries about our looks – I doubt that as much protein powder would be sold or gyms have as many members if they focused their advertising on how much better you will feel as opposed to how good you might look.
