Body Positivity: An empowering movement that is smashing the stereotypes!

The body positivity movement encourages individuals to accept their bodies and the natural, physical changes in body size, shape, and ability that result from aging, the environment, and personal life choices. Body positivity is the belief that an individual’s worth is not dependent on physical factors or outward appearance. Accepting your body as it is, and treating your body right through healthful nourishment and self-care, is the key to achieving body positivity.

Body-positive behaviors promote physical and emotional well-being without being critical or making people feel guilty or ashamed about their self-image. Positive lifestyle changes like healthy eating and fitness, and being mindful of your body’s individual needs, are a body-positive way to feel good about yourself and feel confident you’ve become the best possible version of yourself.
