Wearing a bikini can be hard. You don't always feel confident or beautiful or empowered. We're here to help you change that.
Feeling good in your swimsuit starts with feeling good in your body. Feeling good in your body is deeply affected by the words you tell yourself.
The very first thing to do is start to notice what you say to yourself over the course of the day and "catch" the thought before it embeds.
The biggest drain on body confidence can be the words we tell ourselves. Words are powerful and the words we tell ourselves reverberate into all aspects of our lives. The book, The Four Agreements says to “Use the power of your word in the direction of truth and love.” This should be especially applied when speaking to yourself and therefore you must train yourself to catch the negative self-talk. Become aware and you’ll find yourself stopping the words before they have a chance to embed in your subconscious. When you do catch it, slip in a positive thought. An example: you’re working out in front of a mirror and you notice a little belly bulge poking out. Don’t think, ew. Immediately switch your mindset to something positive and instead think “wow, my eyes look beautiful right now.
Then start to incorporate even more positive affirmations and mantras throughout the day. Start by writing down things you love about yourself and then create mantras around that. Ex: If you love your eyes, when you wake up and look at yourself in the mirror say "I love my beautiful eyes".
