Wise Words on Loving Your Body In Every Size, Shape & Age

 Unrealistic beauty standards have existed for centuries. The rise of television, advertising campaigns, and social media, have made them that much more present in our lives. We get underlying messages that we aren’t young, fit, or thin enough several times a day, sometimes without even realizing it. The problem is that over time, we internalize those ideas, become overly critical with ourselves, and eventually, this notion can be very harmful to our physical and mental health.

The good news is that awareness of the issue has been spreading through the various media outlets, and more and more people including the likes of celebrities and experts, are shifting the lens from being obsessed with our imperfections to accepting and even celebrating them. 

Making that mental shift can be difficult at first, and hard to maintain - after all, we all have our off days. But worry not, we have put together a list of quotes about embracing your body, no matter your shape, size, or age. Whenever you feel you are being harsh on yourself, or need a bit of inspiration, you can always come back and look at these uplifting words.
