I can’t think of anything more loving than celebrating and participating in Be Body Positive Day!
The Body Positive Founders Connie Sobczak and Elizabeth Scott, LCSW, encourage everyone to
“…do something that makes you feel terrific about your body.”
Examples of what they suggest we do:
-Replace critical comments about your body with kind words
-Make a beautiful meal filled with vibrant colors for your favorite people.
-Go for a walk with a good friend.
-Spend the day resting with a book, or watching a favorite movie.
-Exercise your body purely for the joy of movement.
