In this week's installment of the Yoga Living Project, we are thrilled to present a blog on body positivity from Tracie Johnson. This topic is much needed both in our society and in the yoga world where too often the shape and look of the pose gets more attention than the sensation of the body. Remember, it's not about how far you go into a pose that counts, it's about how far you feel into it. Have your own great life advice that you can share with the Cambio Community?

 3 Tips To Help You Be More Body Confident 1 4a4d6



3 Tips To Help You Be More Body Confident

Maintaining a good weight is a challenge that most people face. Furthermore, when trying to lose weight you can get frustrated. When you are overweight it tends to result in a lack of body confidence. You can feel really bad about how you look and even how you feel. This can actually make it harder to lose weight because you just give up.


1. Keep the Positive and Avoid the Negative

Your attitude towards yourself and your body is important to be able to obtain a healthy weight. It is important to keep positive and avoid the negative. This does not mean being dishonest with yourself. Thinking you are supermodel potential when you are grossly overweight could actually make things worse. But you need to think about the positives rather than the negatives. Try to encourage yourself by what you do right, rather than the mistakes that you make along the way. When you focus on those negative things you are more likely to give up.


However, this problem goes beyond you, because others can be negative towards you. It is important to try as much as possible to keep away from people who are always negative. Find friends that will be helpful while being fun to be around. Nothing will help your confidence more than not being around people who are constantly insulting you. It is very helpful to be around people who will encourage you rather than insult you because this can be discouraging.


2. Find a Way of Exercising that You Love to Do

Exercise is a good way to improve your mood as well as losing weight. However, if you are trying to do exercises that you do not like you will not keep them up regardless of the results. This is why many gym memberships go unused, that is because people find it too much of a chore. Doing a form of exercise that you like will produce endorphins that will make it even more enjoyable. You will never keep doing something that you do not enjoy.


Getting exercise is a good way to lose weight, getting yourself physically fit, and thereby improving your body confidence. But regardless of the results, you will not keep doing exercises that you do not enjoy doing them. Find a form of exercise that you enjoy doing and stick with it. It may even help if there is something that does not sound like it is exercise. Taking a walk is something most people can do and you can look at the scenery, talk to your neighbors, listen to music, and any number of things that will make it something you do not have to force yourself to do.


3. Find Professionals

When all else fails sometimes you times just need to go to professionals for help. Because losing weight is an important way to gain body confidence, getting a personalized nutrition plan from nutritional professionals is a step in the right direction. Good nutrition is an important part of losing weight as well as maintaining a good weight after you have lost what you need to. Making sure that any weight loss plan that you use is fitted to your need is the best and healthiest solution to losing the weight that you need.


Sometimes seeking medical advice may be necessary, particularly if you have a really serious weight problem. This is because there can be other health issues besides just eating too much that is causing your problem. Nothing will help you more than talking to someone who has the knowledge to help you. While talking to sympathetic friends or family can help, seeking a medical professional may be what you need. Ultimately the key is finding out exactly what you need to do to lose the weight you need to in a healthy manner and that will help increase your body confidence.


Having a proper degree of body confidence is an important part of being able to lose weight or otherwise get healthier. If you have too much confidence you will probably not do anything. If you have too little it can lead to depression and other problems. Finding the balance is what you really need.
