Yes to Positive Body Image and Week of July 11th Breakdown

Updated: Jul 13, 2022

Hi Guys!

Before we get to this week's AWESOME breakdown, I want to touch on a subject that is super close to my heart.

I am going to start off with a recap:

According to a clinical psychologist named Elizabeth Halsted there are three components to having a positive body image:

1. Self-Esteem which is all about you truly believing that others appreciate you for who you are and that they actually enjoy spending time with you.

2. Positive Attitude which is about accepting your strengths and your weaknesses and avoiding perfectionism, comparing and being highly critical or judgmental. I am going to pause and make a little note: the more critical and judgmental you are of others the more you are of yourself. I am just putting that out there as an invitation to check in with our thoughts regularly for our very own benefit.

3. Having a positive image according to Elizabeth Halstead is the Emotional Stability in that is having a connection between our thoughts and feelings and the ability to actually share these thoughts and feelings and talk about it so it's like very heightened Mindfulness - an awareness of what's going through our mind and how it's making us feel in the moment.

Today we are going to look at the Positive Attitude component and see a few of the tools that are out there for us to use and increase the positive attitude:

  • Pay attention to your internal dialogue. When your mind and thoughts go negative try to question is - is that really true? If the you answered no - great! Move on! If you answered yes - that's ok - go positive. For example, turn the “I am so bad at this!” to, “Perhaps this is not one of my strengths, but I tried my best, and I am absolutely skilled in many other things.” You can even go on to actually listing those "other" things!

  • Surround yourself with positivity. Whether it's people who cheer you on or strengthen you in a positive way, or environments that are positive for you - wrap yourself up in all of that goodness.

  • Reach out and support. Help others. I promise you that you will feel warm and cozy inside as a result!

We will discuss the third component next week!
