Today I appreciate my body because...

I had something come up recently and currently I'm trying not to fall back into unhelpful thoughts/habits connected to body image because of it. One thing I'm doing is reminding myself of the things my body does I appreciate it for to stop myself getting wrapped up in its size again (because really, why should that matter?). Feel free to join in if it sounds useful to you πŸ™‚

 

Today I appreciate my body because it dances to my favourite music, let's me taste yummy brownies, can ride up and down mountain bike trails and pats dogs for me.

@hellofriend I love this thread! Today I appreciate my body because I could go out for field hockey trials and have fun playing sports. And hey I can hug the people I love (unless Covid-19 restrictions stop me of course).

Hi @hellofriend 

 

Today I appreciate my body because its mine, and I am able to work on it and change it and make it want I want it to be. I'm going to start working out more now that Uni is done, and I am so excited to change myself FOR myself.

Today I appreciate my body because it rips blackberries out of the ground and stops them taking over and killing the rest of the garden.

Orgasms. I hesitated putting it out there because it's a bit taboo to talk about, but it's a normal body function that it's ok to enjoy and appreciate, and it definitely leaves me thinking 'wow my body is cool'
