It’s time to love the body you’re in

Not good enough. Not sexy enough. Not thin enough…

The relationship many of us have with our bodies is not kind.

And who can blame us for feeling less than confident about our thighs, or any other bits, when society’s idea of the “perfect” body is an unrealistic shape paraded in front of us in advertising, on screen, and in women’s magazines?

But the time has long since come to reject these images strongly and practice love and gratitude for our body and the many things it let’s us do, from walking, or swimming or giving hugs, having a baby, or running a marathon.

Remember, we all need to inspire each other to accept ourselves, in all our glory, especially with new research from the United States finding 30 per cent of girls worldwide show signs of disordered eating. 

The study, published in the Journal of the American Medical Association,  defined disordered eating as behaviours including weight loss dieting, binge eating, self-induced vomiting, excessive exercise and the use of laxatives or diuretics. 

At Elladex, we’re saying enough already and rejecting propaganda that tries to make women feel less than. 

You ARE good enough. Put that on a post-it note somewhere you can see it and affirm it often. 

Keep yourself connected.
