  1. Track your progress

You might not be where you ultimately want to be right now, that’s okay!!! Tracking your progress is everything! Knowing that you are heading in the right direction towards crushing your goals can make you feel so much better about yourself. I track my weight loss on a dry erase board. Every week I record my weight so I can see my progress. I might only lose a pound in a week, but when I look and see that I’ve lost 80 pounds overall, I feel AMAZING. Just keep things in perspective and realize that one step forward is better than two steps back.

  1. Point out the things you love

For some reason, it is so much easier to notice the things you don’t like about yourself, and your body, as opposed to the things that you do like. This is why you need to remind yourself of the things you love about yourself! When I’m feeling particularly down about myself, I go to the bathroom and look at myself in the mirror. I think in my head all the things that I like about myself. These are the things that make me feel good. It could be that my hair looks great that day, or that my skin is clear and even. Finding those qualities that make you feel good can really boost your confidence. Focus on the positives, not the negatives!

  1. Find ways to change what you don’t like

Are you confident and happy with your body? Read this post with 5 tips to embrace your body, increase your confidence, and appreciate the awesome person that you are.

Understanding that it is okay to change things that you don’t like about yourself is so important. Just remember that you should only change things that you don’t like, not what someone else might not like! Know that how you feel about yourself is more important than how anyone else feels about you. Keep that in mind when assessing things that you’d like to change! For me, I personally didn’t like that I was overweight. Because I didn’t like my body or self that way, I decided to change it by eating better and getting more exercise. Now when I lose weight, I know that ultimately I did it for me and not for anyone else. It is so satisfying to improve your self-esteem based on your own feelings and not anyone elses!  

  1. Buy yourself something new

Personally, this is my favourite confidence booster!! What better way to celebrate improving your confidence and self-esteem than by treating yourself to something new? Rewarding yourself if such an important part of self-care! When I hit a new weight loss goal, I go out and buy myself a new outfit. I try to choose something that shows off my hard work and accentuates my new figure! It’s amazing how a new pair of jeans can add to your newly found confidence!

  1. Build others up

Happiness starts with yourself, but being kind to others can ultimately boost your self-esteem as well! I am a true believer in the idea that spreading positivity will bring it right back to you! If you can help make someone else feel good about themselves, that person might just return the favour. It is so easy to perpetuate hatred these days. Be the one to spread self-love and confidence instead.

There are so many ways to appreciate the unique and special human being that you are. I hope these little tips help you embrace your body and make a big difference in your life!

  1. you got me at “Find ways to change what you don’t like”. this is just spot on. reading your article felt like being cheered on in a middle of a nerve-wrecking game. =)

  2. Lovely ideas…! Especially BUILD OTHER UP. It really gives you happiness as the popular phrase is “what go around comes around.”. So what you give to other it will surely back to you sooner or later.

  3. Awesome list. Self-love and self-care are very important. I was especially impressed to see that you included building others up in your list. This is an area that we as women often fall short. Sometimes we find it easier to tear others down instead of building them up. This is especially true when we aren’t feeling confident about ourselves. And I’m like you… I love buying myself gifts…lol

  4. Oh, the journey to self love is a long one…and it isn’t a journey. Struggle everyday to embrace my body and fully love it the way it deserves but this gives me the extra push and motivation to try harder. Thanks for this post!

  5. You make a wonderful point about changing for yourself and not changing for another person. It’s so important to be your true self.

  6. what an important topic to tackle! with the proliferation of social media, it is quite challenging this days to love ones body! i strongly believe in tracking ones progress and rewarding oneself.

  7. Clair

    Love this motivating post! I sometimes find myself being hard on myself in regard to body image, especially during the summer. This is a great way to switch that mindset 💕

  8. Carolyn

    These are SO great! If only everyone in the world could read this, it would be SUCH a better place. Especially lifting others up 🙂

  9. What a great topic to blog about. being in the fashion and beauty industry, this is a constant issue many women and men both have to face. Helping someone is one of the best ways to do this for sure and getting yourself something new really works!

  10. Vu Ha

    I like the way :”Find ways to change what you don’t like”. I usually not care about things or people I don’t like, this is the way I feel more happy.

  11. Des

    My favorites are buy something for yourself and build others up! Those are two things that usually make me feel pretty happy. We all need to be kinder to ourselves and one another!

    • Thank you for reading!! There is definitely enough negativity in the world, we shouldn’t add to it!!! Putting out positivity makes all the difference!!

  12. I have some serious body issues but these ideas are so great. I really have noticed that I feel more accomplished and better when I track. Plus, it is always great to embrace what you have so you love yourself now AND later!

  13. Such an encouraging post, in today’s society it is very easy to fall into the trap of self loathing, and not feeling good enough, when you are actually fantastic inside and out. Every day can be a struggle, especially if you focus on things that you find unappealing about yourself, I love that this post is all about building up your strengths.

  14. I love that you bring up understanding that it’s okay to change what you don’t like. I’ve been struggling with my weight and I know what I need to do to make the change in a healthy way. Visually tracking my progress is a great idea!

  15. I thoroughly love these ways to embrace the body – they are practical, making the embrace trackable and tangible. When I pause to truly think about the magnificence of the vessel that supports me, I am in awe. Thanks for sharing these tips. ❤️👍🏼

    Self love is sooo important, as is building up other people’s self esteem. We’ve gotten too used to putting ourselves down and only noticing bad things about ourselves so this is a really refreshing post!

  17. I love all of these points! My absolute favorite this is building someone up or helping them. That gives me so much energy. Tracking progress is huge to. Small wins everyday add up to big results!

  18. I am ALL for loving yourself and embracing your body! I especially liked the ones about pointing out things you love about yourself and building others up. Because we truly are stronger together!
