The Cure For Punishing Yourself

Many people, if not most, dislike some aspect of their bodies. But even worse, they may punish themselves for not having the perfect body by:

• Denying themselves food
• Obsessing about eating or not eating and never enjoying a meal
• Obsessing about exercising or not exercising instead of enjoying being active
• Following diets that never work
• Worrying about how they look rather than their health and quality of life

How do you stop?

Start by doing some people-watching. Find a quiet place where you can sit and watch people walk by and notice all the different sizes and shapes you see. You’ll soon see that very people are model-perfect. That doesn’t mean they aren’t attractive and appealing. We’re all unique and that’s what makes us interesting.
