|Can you find it??|
But few days ago I realized that this file folder filled with great body image activities and quizzes wasn't doing as much good as it ought to. So.... beginning this week I'm introducing:
Bodacious Body Image Wednesdays!
Every Wednesday for the foreseeable future, I'll be posting a new healthy body image activity or quiz for your enjoyment! I'll also be building a "master list" on my new "BODY IMAGE ACTIVITIES & QUIZZES" page, up there in my navigation bar.
For today's activity - the very first of this new weekly series - let's start with something simple: the "Ten Steps To Positive Body Image" list from the National Eating Disorders Association. I posted this list way back in August 2012, but want to bring it out again. So... Here it is, looking all artistic:
|Anyone know the original source? I haven't been able to find it.|
Download this image, file it, pin it, whatever works for you. You can also find a printable black-and-white PDF HERE.
Read through the list and note any steps that particularly resonate with you.
Take ONE step. (my favorites are #7, "Wear clothes that are comfortable...," and #9, "Do something nice for yourself...")
Note how your ONE step made you feel. Consider taking a few more steps, time permitting!
Keep this list handy, either printed out in your home or workplace, or easily accessible on your computer or Pinterest account. Return to it OFTEN, particularly when experiencing what I call the "Body Image Blues." (otherwise known as a "Bad Hair Day" or an "I Feel Fat" feeling or an "I hate my [fill in the blank with a body part]" thought.
Share with others! Spread the word on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, snail-mail, whatever!
And that's it!
What do you think of my new Wednesday series? Do you have any great body image activities to contribute? I want to hear about them!
