How Does Having a Positive Body Image Affect Your Relationships?
It seems like a no-brainer that if we feel comfortable in our own skin it would lead to better relationships. Not only with ourselves but with others.
When we value our health, emotional, spiritual, and physical, (focus on the physical here) we begin to hold ourselves differently. The interesting thing about how we carry ourselves is there have been studies done on posture and positioning and feelings of confidence.
An amazing talk by Amy Cuddy, she talks about the utility of body positioning and “faking it until you become it” versus the fake it until you make it idea.
The research shows that body positioning can change our hormones for the better and give us increased confidence and general good feelings. No matter where you are in your physical health journey, we can start to trick the body and accelerate our progress to allow us to reach a positive image of our bodies and start building the relationships we deserve.
It almost goes without saying but when we combine the above with a health and nutrition program the results will only compound. We are excited for you to experience our fitness and nutrition coaches and what they have to offer.
Make sure to see their modules for their fitness routines and meals that will not only make you look amazing but feel amazing inside and out.
Start to bring awareness to shapes your body takes throughout the day and use some simple tactile cues to correct them. A simple cue is to place your arms in front of you, palms towards the sky, and rotate your hands out to the side away from your body.
This simple movement will help you pull your shoulders down and back and straighten out your spine.
Be sure to hit your daily goals and together we will find YOUR balance!
