Accepting your body means accepting how it looks, works, and feels before adding any kind of preconceived notions, judgments, or expectations onto it.
Accepting your body means being your own friend, the healthy kind, I mean.
Before embarking on a self-improvement journey, maybe it would be a good idea to take stock of what you already have to work with. It’s easy to take certain things for granted, like the ability to use both hands and feet, or having teeth. Sometimes the best kind of self-improvement is giving your body what it needs, rather than what you want it to be.
Accepting your body can be challenging, but the practice of being kind and loving to yourself will teach you how to do the same for others. You may find that by accepting your body, you learn to appreciate the amazing and complex entity that you truly are.
