7 Things To Do For More Self-Acceptance Today | Empowering Boudoir Photography
Here at Bmore Boudoir I am all about empowering women. Some days it’s easy to feel on top of the world! Some days it isn’t and that’s okay. I thought I’d take some time today to talk about different activities to promote self-acceptance on days when love just isn’t coming naturally.
Name One Thing You Love About Your Body and Your Mind
It’s so easy to get caught up in all the negatives. Flip the script - what’s something that you love about your body? About your personality? Maybe you always get complimented on your eyes or your sense of humor. Maybe you’re proud of how far you’ve come in your career. Whatever it is, I bet it’s something that’s super unique and fabulous about you!
Slow Down and Appreciate the Moment
With the weather changing for the better (mostly) I’ve been spending more and more time outside. Even if it’s just for a few minutes before dinner, it’s nice to step outside and breathe. Summer is coming my friends, no matter what Game of Thrones says. Let’s appreciate it!
Take A Selfie
I don’t know about you but I always have my phone on me! This is a great one to do no matter where you are, or what you look like. You’re beautiful, and even if that photo. Take a selfie, and then try and think only positive things about it. Instead of thinking ‘I look tired,’ think ‘I take great care of my kids and wake up early to play with them.’ It’s crazy how much changing your outlook can change your life!
Indulge in Something Small
Chocolate anybody? Life is all about the little things and indulging is a personal thing. I’m partial to a slice of pizza, but your idea of a small indulgence might be your favorite TV show or a glass of wine after dinner. Looking for recommendations? I think a boudoir shoot is a good idea!
Make a Choice Now That Your Future Self Will Thank You For
Lay out your clothes for the gym, prep the kid’s lunches - anything that tomorrow morning you will be grateful that she doesn’t have to do. A great tip I’ve heard of is to imagine your future self as a child under your care. We’re all just taking care of our future selves after all. Make her life easier!
Do Something You’re Good At
Feeling sad? The best way to feel better is to do something that you know that you’re good at, whether that be boxing or baking. Activities that you’re good at are perfect self acceptance activities. I know when I’m feeling blue, getting into the groove with my photography always perks me back up again. That’s my happy place!
Commit to Loving Yourself Tomorrow
Because you’re worth it! If these suggestions seem too overwhelming at the moment, remember them tomorrow. Or the day after. I promise that you are a bada** babe who deserves everything good in life!
