Here’s a sad but true fact: out of all the women I have met in my life, 90% or more actually hate their bodies or at least a part of their bodies.
I find this to be disturbing and very sad.
Our culture praises and admires healthy and athletic bodies, but for their aesthetic quality and sexual energy and less as mirrors of healthy, balanced and conscious human beings.
As a result, women do not like their looks; they cannot compete with the airbrushed and photo-shopped pictures they see in various ads and magazines.
Women compare their looks to this illusion and find themselves lacking; they ruthlessly criticize their legs, arms, chins and abdomens. As a result, they treat their own bodies with disrespect and contempt.
The physical body is a reflection of the internal workings of a person. The more you like yourself and your body, the better you will treat yourself and the better you will look!
So start inside with loving, compassionate thoughts for yourself. Treat your body well, feed it high quality foods and beverages, exercise to feel good and increase your well-being, take time to be by yourself and pay attention to how you feel. Respect yourself and your body will answer in kind.
