Healthy Body Image - Give The Gift To Someone You Love

I spend most of my days talking to women from all over the world (literally), who struggle with feeling weighted down by the pounds on the scale, the way they see themselves in the mirror and how they feel physically and emotionally.

Women from every corner of the globe are looking to put to rest, once and for all, their frustration and preoccupation with food, fat and failure and in so many cases, these feelings begin all too young. 

The book recommended below speaks to this fact and to young women who can begin now to stop punishing themselves with negative feelings about their bodies and the negative images they create in their minds and hearts and focus on what will really pull them successfully through their lives - self love.

101 Ways to Help Your Daughter Love Her Body by Brenda Lane Richardson and Elane Rehr.

This notion is felt amoung many women. Self love is important for every human being. If we dont have inner peace and love then it is very difficult to be happy.

Society needs to look at its definition of beauty to include the sum of a woman's life experiences. A woman is born a beautiful baby, grows into a beautiful young woman, and matures into a beautiful woman - regardless of her height, weight, hair color, skin tone, or any other physical feature. Positive body image begins with women taking a moment and reflecting on the beauty that they carry with them, within themselves, throughout their lifetime.

Agree that the bigger part of the problem is that women doesn't like their bodies. They fail to realize that when you like yourself and your self image, you look great. That's the real secret of charm. They just want to look like magazine's cover girl...
