Body Positivity For Motivational Monday

Happy Motivational Monday everyone,

Today’s post is all about body positivity and being happy with yourself.

It is important to love your body and truly understand it’s unique needs. In a day where social media reigns supreme, it is easy to understand why body dysmorphia is on the rise. Many social media bloggers will brand themselves according to their type of eating like Vegan or Paleo or cupcake lover. Women need to understand and embrace that every single person is unique and so are their dietary needs. Instead of trying to be like someone else, be yourself and really tune in to what makes you feel good.

Two women the same age can thrive on different lifestyles, diet and exercise. The key is listening to your own inner voice and wisdom and not get distracted on what the internet or a blogger or a movie star says. The other issue with social media is that it embraces the unattainable perfection. It just doesn’t exist.

Love your body inside and out for the incredible machinery and gift it is. Feed it well with love, care and good food that resonates on the inside. Stop comparing yourself to others because you will never be someone else only yourself.

Lady Code is a place to empower women, whether that be to eat healthier, have a positive outlook, inspire makeup and fashion styles, but mostly to LOVE themselves.

Please watch the video below which inspired me for this post.

I am implore everyone reading this to STOP thinking about what they don’t like about themselves or what they wish they could change and START thinking about what they love about themselves.

This theme perfectly ties in with Lisa Opie’s un-retouched campaign for her swimsuit line, Vizcaya Swimwear. In this recent photo shoot, Lisa wanted to promote body love or what she is referring to as #PerfectlyImperfect!

A special “Thank you” to Dr. Elizabeth Trattner for helping with this post.

Happy Monday!

Love Char ❤

  4. SO inspiring! The video brought me to tears. Society puts so much pressure on us as women. When she talked about her daughter, that was an eye-opener. My Skye is 6 and she is so beautiful! I want to be an example for her. I want to teach her confidence. If you tell her she is beautiful, she will tell you, “I know that!” And while I realize I should teach her to say Thank you, I still have to chuckle, because I love that she has that spirit and I desperately don’t want her to lose it ❤

  5. WOW! So Inspiring! The video literally brought me to tears. The world puts so much pressure on us, especially as women. When she talked about her daughter, it was a real eye-opener. My Skye is 6 and she is gorgeous. If you tell her she is beautiful, she will tell you, “I know that.” I have to giggle because, while I realize I ought to teach her to say Thank you, I just love that she has so much confidence, and that she really does know how pretty she is, and I never want her to lose that. I want to be an example for her. I want her to be able to grow up and love herself just as much as she does now!
