“You define beauty yourself. Society doesn’t define your beauty.” – Lady Gaga
When was the last time you took a moment to ask yourself, what is my relationship with my body image?
How we treat our bodies not only with the physical things that we do but also the way we think about them, speak about them, and describe them to other people is so important.
In this episode of The Elevated Life podcast, we’re sharing “How to Build a Better Body Image” so that you can reflect, rediscover and reconnect with your body. If you want to shift your mindset around your body image, take a deep breath and listen to this episode!
Tune in to hear:
✨ How to do a mental review of your self talk
✨ Steps to take to begin appreciating your body
✨ How to get out of your own way to start making changes
✨ The three things you can do to build a better body image
How to Build a Better Body Image
Start Monitoring Your Self Talk
When you start to speak those stories in your head, you’ve got to listen to what you’re saying. If you’re not saying helpful, true, or supportive things, you’re going to have to figure out a way to silence them. If you can silence even a portion of those negative messages, think about how much better you feel after the rest of the day. You feel amazing. It’s because you’re not bombarding yourself with messages that don’t support your growth or support your career, or support what you’re doing with your family or with your mission in life, or whatever you feel your purpose is.
Reconnect Your Body With Pleasure
If you’ve been disliking your body, it’s time to take a pause and get back to realizing that your body not only keeps you alive but is a massive conduit for pleasure. You want to start manipulating your body through gentle and continuous touch. Start with hugging yourself. The only goal is for you to begin to love yourself.
Challenge and Appreciate Your Body
You’ll find correlations in the success of your life when you begin to challenge your body, learn to appreciate it, and thank it for what it does. Recognize where you have a limit to how strong or whether you can physically do something, and do it. Maybe you’ve put a limit on yourself, but there’s something beyond that that allows you to appreciate your body in ways that you become so accustomed to because it runs on autopilot.

You see…there’s a reason why some people enjoy happiness, prosperity, success, and love while others seem to live a life bound to misery, poverty, loneliness, and shame.
It’s not for lack of hard work, good intentions, or a sound plan.
What stops people is their belief in themselves.
Your self image is so powerful it allows you to be, do, or get anything you want.
It’s responsible for your self-esteem, self-confidence, and self-worth.
As Henry Ford said, “whether you think you can or you can’t, you’re right.”
We only get in life what we believe we deserve.
