Women’s bodies were not created equally. Some are slim, some have wide hips, others have broad shoulders, the list just goes on and on.
Now the million dollar question is: which one is the most beautiful body shape?
Is it the ruler? Think Gwyneth Paltrow.
Is it the hourglass? Think Beyonce.
Could it be the apple? Oprah Winfrey perhaps?
Or the pear shape like Kim Kardashian?
I couldn’t make up my mind because I don’t know the answer.
However, I know that everyone can feel and look beautiful whatever their body shape is. How? Read on..
Love Your Body
Self-acceptance is the first step to feeling and looking beautiful. Whatever body shape you have, be thankful you have hands, feet, eyes, a nose and a mouth. Imagine if you had three eyes! You are God’s creation. You are fearfully and wonderfully made therefore, you are beautiful. Yes, say that to yourself again and again.
Learn Your Style
When it comes to choosing what to wear, remember to WEAR THE RIGHT SIZE! Please, my dear beautiful women I beg you, do not try to fit into a dress that is one size smaller. It will only make you look like you’ve put on weight. Just the same, wearing a dress one size bigger will only make you look like a scarecrow! Wear clothes that flatter your greatest assets. Choose the right shade and pattern that will suit your skin color and body shape. Choose bright colors like yellow if you want to look wider and dark shades like black if you want to look slimmer.
Live Your Life
Healthy is the new sexy! We may have different body shapes but we have one thing in common. We all have to live a healthier lifestyle if we want to be beautiful inside and out. Let go of unrealistic goals. Aim for optimum healthy weight range. Take pleasure in eating a variety of foods sans the guilt.
Choose a physical activity that will not only make you burn calories but you also find enjoyable. Gym for some, yoga for others, sports, walking the dog, whatever… just get moving!
Learn to manage stress for it is part of life. De-stress by taking time to just BREATHE!!! Pray! Read! Listen to music. Sleep. Whatever will refresh your mind and stabilize your emotions for a few minutes, do it! The world will not end if you take 10 minutes off to just Relax. Chill. Breathe.
Lifestyle of Detoxification
Detoxify. Not once, not twice but regularly. Cleanse your body by eating life-giving foods that are low in saturated fat, good sources of fiber, vitamins and minerals. Keep yourself hydrated. Never underestimate the power of water.
For many years, I have been suffering from iron deficiency anemia despite a well balanced diet and supplementation. I had to adapt major dietary changes like saying no to my favorite drink, tea. Tannin in tea hinders the absorption of non-heme iron we get from vegetables, breads, cereals and other non-animal sources.
I was the anemic nutritionist-dietitian until I started doing regular colon cleansing and drinking pure wheatgrass everyday. After a year of detoxifying, my blood work just came out normal. I would want to believe that my regular colon cleansing paid off by helping my body absorb available nutrients from my dietary intake more efficiently.
Lastly, a woman who has a sound mind, a healthy body, and a strong spiritual life will feel and look beautiful in all aspects.
