The seasons play a funny trick on us when it comes to body image…
All winter long, nestled deep beneath sweaters, jackets, and other cozy layers, all the insecurities about our thighs, stomachs, and upper arms feel like a thing of the past. We almost convince ourselves (in between bites of bread pudding and pumpkin pie) that gone are the days of petty concern and worry about what we look like. It seems we have finally moved past the insecurity of our younger days, and we’re ready to accept ourselves and our bodies just as they are. (What was all the fuss about last summer, anyway?)
And then the warm weather hits…and it turns out that those complexes were just hibernating. ‘Cause just like that you find yourself right back in the game, dreading the day your kids beg you to take them swimming, and you have to face that swim suit again.
If this sounds familiar, you’re not alone. As the summer heats up, so do the body image issues… and you’d be surprised how many women feel the same anxiety as you do. Summer clothing exposes not just more of our bodies, but the vulnerability we can feel about them. And in a society where we are constantly exposed to an unrealistic ideal, it is easy to be less than kind to ourselves.
But this summer can be different. It really can! It’s not our bodies that need to change; it’s our mindset. Click HERE to learn 5 ways you can feel more comfortable in your swimsuit. Want the good news? There’s so much more where this came from! I’m teaming up with some incredible women who also want to spread this message. We are calling it Love Your Body 2017, and each one of these women is bringing their own unique perspective to help YOU love every minute of your summer – even the minutes spent in your swim suit! We are encouraging women everywhere to take the pledge this summer to Stop Worrying and Start Living.
