Happy Thursday luv! Time for another Purely Talk 🙂
Not sure if you’ve been seeing the Today Show Love your Selfie segments this week? But we are loving them as they are making us think about ourselves differently. Realizing that we have our imperfections. Things we don’t really love about our bodies, but also realizing that we do love our bodies. We love what our bodies allow us to do everyday. As women we need to stand together more and say no more body comparing. No more negative self body image thoughts. Time to embrace everything about our individual bodies! Harder said than done, we know. It will be a personal challenge for us too.
Each day we try to inspire ourselves to continue to inspire others to be the best versions of themselves everyday.
Nowadays it seems more and more people are looking at their bodies wanting to “fix” something. Always looking to improve this or that.
Do you catch yourself immediately focusing on your perceived flaws?
It’s ok if you do. We all do. We catch ourselves doing it.
But we are here to help stop you (and us) from thinking like that towards our bodies. Sure we can put the blame on the news/media or social media, or whatever. But honestly until we all start having that positive self-talk with ourselves things aren’t going to change much.
Are you ready to start replacing “can’t,” “not good enough,” “ugly,” and “imperfect” with “I can,” “I will,” “I’m powerful,” “I’m beautiful.”
And having that self-talk is where it all starts.
Have positive body image. The negativity needs to stop. Again, easier said than done, we know.
Over time we’ve become BIG believers in that whatever you focus on is where YOUR energy is going to go.
Whatever you focus on is where your energy is going to go!
Let us explain.
If you only see yourself failing or see yourself not being able to complete a workout then your mind will start to believe that. Then all your energy will go towards that negative thought. Instead what we want to do is focus ALL our energy in seeing ourselves winning or seeing ourselves completing that workout with power and confidence.
Once you start having that positive self-talk and positive body image with yourself you will be amazed how much you will be able to do in life. In all parts of life.
And through you inspiring yourself to be more positive and stop those negative thoughts you will start to INSPIRE others.
And that is what we want for our purely fit team.
Tips on how to have more positive self-talk with body image.
- find your inspiration. find what drives you.
- always find a positive in every situation
- tell yourself every morning and night –> I am beautiful. I am strong. I am loving. I can do anything I set my mind to. I am going to succeed.
- before each workout have a positive goal for yourself – instead of thinking of calories you are burning think about what that you just did 10 push-ups without stopping. Or you were able to complete the whole workout.
- tell yourself one compliment every time you look into a mirror
- surround yourself with those that inspire and believe in you
- know your talents and be proud of them
