How often do you body check?
By body checking I mean, looking in the mirror many times thought the day, picking on your physical appearance and pinching and squeezing certain parts of your body.
How does doing this make you feel? Do yo feel stressed or does it make you feel better?
If it gets in the way of your day to day activities and makes you severely change your habits, it will be considered compulsive.
A few thing that you can to if you find yourself body checking:
- Keep a log off when it occurs and how often.
- Workout if there are certain situations that trigger you to body check
- Practice affirmations and self-love
- Remove yourself from social media for a bit in order to stop comparing yourself to others.
You are worth more than your thoughts.
