If given an opportunity we’d all be more than happy to change something about our bodies. We all have something or the other that we dislike about our bodies and we want something better and it could be anything from our skin color to our thighs. We’ve all had days when we wanted thinner thighs or a flatter stomach but what happens when someone starts getting uncomfortable in their own skin? What happens when someone is so unhappy with their bodies that they are repulsed by it and look for ways to “fix” themselves? We normally presume that only women who have more flab on their bodies are a victim of body image issues but we don’t notice the problems that those beautiful models face. Many women with slim figures also tend to struggle with this problem. It’s better to resolve this problem while you still have time than end up with a mental health issue or an eating disorder. Here are some ways you can manage your body image issues.

 

1. The first thing you need to do is quit comparing yourself to others. Everyone has a different body and it’s impossible to have the exact same bodies.

2. Give up on unrealistic expectations and perfection. The models you see on television and in the magazines are not exactly how they are. Those pictures are airbrushed or photoshopped. No one can even have a perfect body.

3. Don’t attempt dieting. Stop it right now before it gets worse. See a nutritionist or a dietician if you want a diet plan. Don’t decide what your body needs. You’re no expert.

4. Be grateful for the kind of body you have and appreciate it. Learn to love yourself the way you are. The road to self-love may not be easy but it isn’t impossible.

5. Stop the negative self-talk. Shut down that voice in your head that tells you how pathetic you are and how ugly you are or how disgusting your body is. You don’t need that kind of negativity in your life.

6. Surround yourself with positive thoughts and positive people. Keep the negativity at bay and don’t let anyone make you feel insecure about your body.
