In this day and age where Instagram plays a big role in our life, and likes and followers are all what people care about, it’s hard not to compare ourselves with others. But despite all the insecurities that it can provoke, social media has also given us a platform for self love and positive vibes, without taking into account the the size or shape of our bodies.
The body-positive movement is not about encouraging an unhealthy lifestyle of thin-shaming. It’s all about encouraging people to be more kind and forgiving towards their body with the goal of improving overall well-being and health be it physically or mentally. The main focus is about building self-esteem through improving one’s self image, be it by nurturing and maintaining one’s weight, working -out or changing a lifestyle for a better outlook in life while building more confidence in yourself. It’s all about supporting each other to better self-esteem and these body-positive advocates do just that.
Check out these fire-ry and fierce body-positive advocates and let them inspire you be it through fashion, quotes and overall self confidence.
