Positivity Week 1: You are More than Just your Body

Over the next 12 weeks, I will be presenting an aspect of positivity or mindfulness for us to focus on for the week. These are all topics that I am working on myself and focusing on myself to achieve a happier mindset and calmer state of being. I’ll have a blog post each week and then quotes on my social media networks to support that week’s theme. For more support, join my Positivity Facebook Community. Posts from the 12 weeks will all be on my Positive Thinking Page.

From birth, we are identified with our bodies. Everyone tells our parents who we look like and we begin to identify ourselves as our body. And as we grow up we hear who we act like – a parent or grandparent. We are defined by our bodies and how we act.

The media supports the perfect body and there is a lot of pressure to have a body that looks a certain way. We think a lot about our bodies, how we look, what we’d like to change and we let that define who we are.
