7. Bask in the things that you love. Feeling good about your life is a great way to feel good about yourself.
8. Don’t reward those that offend you. Hate the ads for a product because they really objectify women? Then vote with your dollars and buy a different product. If we all did this, eventually the company will get the message. Want to amplify the volume of your message? Send a letter to the company telling them that you are opting out on their product because of their marketing.
9. Give compliments. Admire (or even envy) someone else. Let them know. You’ll boost his or her body image which will make you feel better!
10. Don’t punish yourself. Stop the “I can have, do, be this when I drop five, fifteen, fifty pounds” language. It’s not that you shouldn’t want to be healthy. It’s that your shape or size shouldn’t determine your worth or sense of self.
