  • Having the confidence to disregard what other people say/think. This can be challenging.
  • Having confidence in yourself and your choices (also challenging).
  • Surrounding yourself with positive people and communities as opposed to ones that foster a 'perfect' body.
  • Telling yourself you look great Smiley Happy
  • Probably some others, what does everyone else think?

Personally, I think some of the key ideas to have a postitive body image is to remember that your body is exactly that, *your* body. Question the media when they show someone who claims to have a 'healthy body', you don't need to and you shouldn't compare yourself to people in the media, And remember to love yourself for your body, in my view that is also an important thing to remember as well.

Being able to see that everybody is different and that realistically not all bodies can look the same, loving the skin you're in

This is such a tricky question, I think we scared everyone off! 
 
I think one of the keys is to notice the influences we have unconsciously or consciously soaked up over the years. 
 
Another thing is not striving for some random definition of perfection.Accepting and then learning to love who we are is pretty awesome and very hard to do though! But definitely worth it.  
 
These days I'm pretty happy with all the cool stuff our bodies can do and how they keep our brains and the wonderful minds inside ticking over.

Yeah, so people that also value acceptance of themselves. Being around family and friends that are encouraging and not demeaning especially towards body image.
