How to deal with body Image and self-Esteem struggles during self-isolation



What I Wore ♻️👇🏻

Taking time away from the outside world has impacted our working environment, social interactions and our mental health. Like many, I’ve had highs and lows during this ordeal. Some days I feel a sense of accomplishment as I’ve scheduled in time to exercise, and I’ve spent the time creating content. While on other days, I just want to chill out in my loungewear and watch some documentaries on Netflix. 

I understand that this situation has challenged us all emotionally and has caused to overthink about things that doesn’t matter, for example, what we see in the mirror. In the past, I let the peer pressure of social media and beauty standards question how I should look, but now I’m in a place where I’ve accepted my body, and I’m proud of how far I’ve come. During self-isolation, I made sure that I focused on my health and well-being as it has helped control my anxiety and help has allowed me to gain self-confidence. It allowed me to become more outspoken and educate others about body diversity as I never had an influential person in my teenage and young adult life to look up too when I was struggling with body image. 

So, I wanted to remind you all that self-care is important and that you need to remind yourself of your self-worth. Don’t compare yourself to others and remember that having curves, body scars and cellulite is perfect natural.
