We have been talking about the fitness of the body. But many of us fail to take care of the fitness of the mind. Why is it so? Are you still stuck in the muck of negative self talk? Do you fear that you are not good enough for yourself and then start to convince yourself that you are not healthy because you feel unattractive? If this is happening to you, please stop doing so now as it will just make you feel even worse.
In fact, fitness is all about positivity. It is all about believing that your body is beautiful even when you are not; it is about positivity towards your life and towards others. So how do we get positivity towards our bodies?
The first thing you need to do is to realize that fitness does not depend on how you look but on how you feel. This is the only way to get your head around the idea that you need not let the size of your body hold you back from getting the happiness and fulfillment that you truly deserve. Once you realize this, you are one step closer to becoming fit. You have now come to terms with the fact that your body is not an end but a means to an end. It is up to you to make the most out of the things that your body has to offer you.
This does not mean that you should sit around complaining about your weight and comparing it to someone else’s. If you do so, you are only going to aggravate your body into thinking that it is underdeveloped and that it needs to be filled up somehow. Instead, you need to go out there and find positive things about your body that are also true. This includes appreciating the great work that you put into your appearance and your well being. Acknowledging positive things about yourself is one way of boosting your confidence and, eventually, your fitness.
There is hope for you if you are still struggling with being able to get a full head of hair or to lose that extra belly fat. If you have had a difficult time in the past because of your size, you can make things better by taking responsibility for the problem and doing something about it. Many people will go to great lengths to rid themselves of unwanted body baggage, which includes poor self-esteem. If you do not want to do that, at least get a positive frame of mind about your looks and about how you look generally.
Getting fit should not be a top priority for you if it is not important to you. Do not let the little things like your bra to show it to you. In other words, do not get so preoccupied with the little things that you can’t see the bigger picture. The key to boosting your fitness is making sure that you do what is important to you.
