As girls it can be difficult to feel positive about how we look or what we do when we see celebrities, and others portrayed in the media with seemingly flawless bodies.  When we spend all of our time trying to be perfect, it can have a negative effect on how we feel about ourselves.  Theodore Roosevelt once said that “comparison is the thief of joy” and when we talk about how we feel about ourselves this is definitely true. If you are always comparing yourself to others or to models and celebrities, will you ever be okay with your own body? Here are a couple of tips to keep in mind:

1) Create a list of positive things your body does for you; if your body got you to and from school today then put that on your list. Each time you start to feel down or negative about your body add something positive about your body to the list instead.

2) When you look at yourself in the mirror, don’t focus on body parts or flaws you think you have. See yourself as the whole person you are. If you start to think about all the things you hate about yourself as you look, say something positive instead. Is there a positive quote you love? Repeat it out loud when you start feeling negative.

And finally, love yourself just the way you are. You are still growing and developing which means that thing about your body that you hate right now, you may grow out of that or even grow to love it.
