Feeling More Comfortable in Your Body

Feeling More Comfortable in Your Body

In the day and age of social media, it can be all too easy to compare yourself and things like your life, your body, your looks and your relationships with those of other people. While this can be extremely damaging to your self-esteem, self-image, self-love and self-confidence, many people can’t seem to break the toxic habit. If you are one of those people then this article could be of great use to you. So, read on to learn about how you can feel more comfortable in your own body.

Know Who You Are

‘Know who you are’? Yes. If you want to feel more comfortable in your body, then you must know and own who you are. If you have fallen into the trap of feeling like you want or need to be and imitate someone you are not, you must remind yourself that being true to yourself is a necessity – your morals, your values, your perspective and your motivations are all valuable and unique to you. When comparing yourself with other people it can be easy to forget that their decisions are shaped by their own lives and experiences. Since everyone has a different perspective on life, you must accept that their version of reality is unique to them, as yours is to you. You should find and define your own views and opinions. By doing so, it is more likely that you will feel comfortable in and with yourself because you will know that nobody compares to you. You are unique and you should love and own that fact.

Wear Clothes That Fit Right

Another piece  of advice that you can use to feel more comfortable in your body is wear clothes that fit right. If you are wearing clothes that are either too big or too small you may think less of your body. Of course, that doesn’t mean that you cannot wear baggy clothes if that is what you prefer. What it does mean is that you should know what size clothing fits you. Human bodies have a tendency to change a lot, so you should size yourself on a regular basis if you feel that you have lost or gained weight. That way, you will know what size of clothing best suits your body. If you are on the smaller end of the spectrum then petite size clothing ranges may work well for you. Similarly, if you are on the taller side, then you may want to buy clothes that are specifically created with tall people in mind. By doing so, you can be assured that your clothes fit you just right.

Do Not Compare

If you want to feel more confident in your body then you must not compare yourself to other people. While it can be tempting to do so, this can have a majorly negative impact on your self-worth and mental wellbeing. So, rather than comparing your body to that supermodel that you saw on Instagram, love and appreciate the beautiful body that you were blessed with. If you find it difficult not to compare, then perhaps take a little break from the internet to recalibrate. A social media detox can do wonders for your mentality.
