Body Goals: How To Boost Your Confidence

 Surveys suggest that the majority of women have negative body image. For many of us, there is a direct link between a lack of confidence and the way we feel when we look in the mirror. If you long to feel more confident and you want to achieve body goals, here are some steps to take today. 

Personalize your goals

We are all different and unique. There are billions of humans roaming the planet, but we have an extremely narrow view of what the perfect body constitutes. When you think about your body, personalize your goals and try to resist external pressures and societal trends. Focus on what you want to achieve. Perhaps you want to lose weight or gain muscle, or maybe you want your body to be more toned and defined or more shapely and curvy. There is no right or wrong answer, and you should work towards objectives that are relevant to you. Don’t feel like you need to fit into a mold or look a certain way because it’s fashionable. Once you have objectives, you can work out your next step. This may mean exploring options such as breast enhancement treatment, working out with a personal trainer, adjusting your exercise regime, changing your diet or doing activities that will help you build muscle or streamline your silhouette.

Prioritize health and wellbeing

The subject of health has dominated the headlines for the last two years and many of us are trying to be proactive in putting health and wellbeing first. When you think about the relationship you have with your body, try to separate functionality from aesthetics. Having a healthy body and good mental health doesn’t always mean being very slim or not having any fat on your tummy. Focus on looking after your body and mind. Try to exercise regularly. Physical activity is an effective way to lower the risk of disease, but it also boosts confidence and makes you feel good. Follow a healthy eating plan, which includes all the major food groups, and understand the benefit of nutrition. Aim to include nutrient-rich foods that fuel your body. 

Take a break from social media

Social media offers a host of benefits, but it can have a negative impact on body image and self-confidence. If you find yourself scrolling through images of models and influencers who seem to look perfect all the time and it gets you down or makes you feel worthless, inadequate or unattractive, take a break and edit your settings to restrict content. Follow accounts that promote body positivity and try to avoid comparing yourself to others. It’s important to remember that everyone has flaws and that social media images are often edited or filtered to create content that sells. Use your time constructively, surround yourself with people who make you feel good and devote more time to activities that increase your confidence.
