Enough of the self-criticism and questions about your body. Make 2018 the year when you blossom with self-confidence and boost your body confidence to new heights. It’ll change the way you approach your entire day, work, love life, and life in general.
According to an article published in Psychology Today, there’s one minor shift you can make to instantly improve your body confidence. And it could be as simple as changing the way you ask yourself questions about your own body.
As article author Jessica Alleva Ph.D. points out, we’re quick to point out the flaws we quickly see in the mirror.
My body is too heavy… weak… the thoughts go on and on, and chances are they’re neither productive nor positive.
But Alleva proposes and super simple shift that will instantly have you appreciating your body and all of the wonderful things it allows for you to accomplish during a regular day.

What can it do for you? It can take you from A to B. It can let you take on that intense HIIT workout you’ve been eyeing on Instagram for month. It can help you literally create and carry life. It can help you heal yourself from a surprisingly nasty winter cold.
It can also help you break it down on the dance floor, meditate, and and spend time with those you love in your life.
Simply put: It can help you be you, so it’s time to cherish it for what it gives you.
“By training people to focus on their body functionality, we can help them to regain a more balanced perspective,” writes Alleva.
And getting to this point of profound body confidence means that it’ll permeate into every part of your life and daily living.
