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 🙂

 

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'
