In a culture obsessed with perfection, it’s easy to crave what you don’t have – or what you feel you should have.
Often, the image of the so-called ‘perfection’ is something completely unattainable, unless you live off cigarettes and
air, or can Photoshop every image you appear in.
If you’ve got a healthy body with two arms, two legs, and everything appears to be in the right place – you’re
doing pretty well. Here’s why women should love what they’ve been given!
What you’ve been given doesn’t have to remain the same, all the time
Your body is generally a reflection of your lifestyle. If you live an active life and take care of what you’ve been given,
it’s probably looking pretty good! If you’re on the other end of the spectrum, then maybe things aren’t looking as
tight and toned as they could be.
The great thing about what you’ve been given is that it’s yours to change by a number of different
means. If you’re looking for an immediate head start on changing your body, specialists like Dr Joseph Ajaka can help. A quick chat with Dr Ajaka will help you determine what you’d like to change, and how to
make it happen.
If you’d prefer to change gradually, the age-old remedy of diet and exercise still rings true to this day. Again, the
great thing about what you’ve been given is that it can change, if you want it to.
Because what you’ve been given should be celebrated, not hated
Comparing yourself to unattainable ideals is very unhealthy for the mind. If you’ve got a body free of disease and
you’ve got all your limbs, you’re doing better than many other people on this planet. Conversely, the world isn’t
made up of stick-thin people, despite what the tabloids might like us to believe.
So instead of worrying about something you don’t have, celebrate the fact that you’re fully formed, curvalicious
and still alive!
Because the people who matter love what you’ve been given
If you asked those closest to you what they thought of your body and whether there could be anything different, 9
times out of 10 the answer will be a resounding ‘no’.
Usually, the only one who cares about whether you’re too fat or too thin is you. Unless you had serious health
problems, chances are your family and friends love you exactly how you are – curves and all.
The media and society seems to encourage women to think negatively about their body, or crave a figure that is
too unreasonable for the average woman to achieve – unless they want to risk starvation!
Being curvalicious is something that should be celebrated, not suppressed. As long as your living a healthy
lifestyle and aren’t suffering any medical issues, then who’s to say that being curvy is not up to scratch. If you feel
like you’ve got a little too much cushion for the pushin, then you can take matters into your own hands and change
your shape – but doing it for your health is far better than doing it for purely cosmetic reasons.
What do you find great about being a curvalicious human being?
