Nice and weird?
How to learn to love your body
Over 11 million - that's how many posts are now on Instagram under the term #bodypositive. The social media hype has become a worldwide trend that has changed the way we think. But in order to understand body positivity and at best live it ourselves, we have to look behind the cloak of beauty.
What is actually beautiful? Why do we find something beautiful? And how do you learn to love yourself?
Is beauty really in the eye of the beholder?
How beautiful is the world?
In America, the media influence the notion of the perfect body. Women should be more curvy here, men should be defined. Plastic surgery is widespread not only in North but also in South America in order to eliminate alleged blemishes.
Fun fact for you to consider:
If you google which ideals of beauty apply worldwide, you will almost exclusively find articles that thematize the beauty of women. Men do not seem to have to submit so strongly to these ideals, at least on the Net.
Why is Body Positivity so difficult?
How can I love myself?
1: Take care of your body
2: Listen to your body
3: Appreciate your body for its achievements
4: Forget numbers
5: Do not compare yourself
