OUR BODIES ARE BEAUTIFUL and important in so many ways, and yet most of us take issue with them and dislike them fiercely. Over time, society has shifted its ideals as to what the perfect body should be. Depending on the time period, full, curvy, skinny, and muscular body types have been sought after. Recently, there has been a movement toward specific body parts needing to be thin and others fuller and more muscular in both men and women. The one thing that remains constant is that there is no constant. What society views as “ideal” or “perfect” is always changing. Unfortunately, in response to the pressures of society and, in particular, the media, most individuals strive to change their bodies and keep up with what is considered acceptable and attractive at the time. This ends up being a very difficult, draining task, which may burden people physically, emotionally and financially. The results of dieting, overexercising, and surgery are often temporary and unsuccessful long-term. These often exhausting strategies seem futile to many people, and rarely give the individual the gratification he or she sought so hard to achieve. Ultimately, it would be most beneficial for us to stop trying to change the amazing gift we were given. Instead, the focus should be on eating all foods in moderation and exercising in a way that is not extreme. This way, we are taking care of our bodies properly, and whatever size or shape we have is natural and heathy. You deserve care and kindness every day; remind yourself to accept your body and appreciate it unconditionally.
