I hope you are having a spectacular day!! Today I want to share a book I recently read titled, “Inside Out,” written by the wonderful, Anastasia Amour. Anastasia is a huge advocate for body positivity and her new book is a testament to that passion.
Anastasia describes herself as, “the go-to source for women around the world wanting to stamp out self-inflicted negativity & embrace Fearless Body Confidence.” I agree. From her blog, to her social media sites, and now her book, she is a body positivity force to be reckoned with.
The book walks you through different exercises to help you learn to throw out the negative feelings you have towards your body and replace them with love and positive thoughts. Each exercise gets you closer to accepting and loving your body. I’d say that is pretty darn awesome.
I like to think that I have a fairly positive view of my body but I will admit that reading through, “Inside Out” helped me realize that I still hold some negative views of my body that I need to work on. Although I work hard at loving and appreciating my body I’ve noticed that I still hold on to the insecurities that have been instilled in me since I was little: I am too fat for a crop top, I should stay away from a bikini, I should wear dresses that hide my tummy. These thoughts are so engrained in me that I don’t even notice anymore. That just isn’t cool. By recognizing these poisonous thoughts I can learn, with help from a few of Anastasia’s exercises, to change those negatives into self love and embrace Fearless Body Confidence.
We all have the power to change the way we view our bodies. You are beautiful and deserve love, respect, and every good thing in this world. You got this!
This book is awesome and I definitely recommend you checking it out. Even me, a person that totally thought she had this body positivity thing down learned from it and I know it helped me recognize and understand my own insecurities.
