Dealing with Body Image Issues

In an ideal world, we’d all be totally happy with the way we looked. We wouldn’t look in the mirror and see a crooked nose or excess weight - we’d see a happy person living their best life.

Unfortunately, life isn’t like that and most of us, even those men and women we’d consider to be the most beautiful on the planet, have their issues. There are few if any of us who, given the opportunity, wouldn’t wave a magic wand and change at least one aspect of ourselves.

Sadly, it isn’t possible to use magic to boost our confidence by changing our looks. However, it is possible to effectively deal with our body image issues, so that we are happier, healthier and more confident in ourselves. Here are just a few ways we can do that:

Be Grateful

Even if you are really unhealthy and you’re currently struggling with your weight or your skin is constantly breaking out, be grateful for the fact that you’re alive and you have a body that is, in most ways, working for you. Be grateful for your body, even if it is imperfect and you’ll immediately start to feel a little better about your body issues.

Good Grooming

Whether you think you’re too fat or thin, have too much hair or too little, you’re worried about cellulite or you feel like your nose is too big, taking the time to groom yourself - looking after your skin, showering regularly, looking after your hair, wearing clean clothes - will give you an instant confidence boost and ensure that you look the best you can.

Cosmetic Procedures

It isn’t the cheapest option, and you should probably try a few other things in this post first, but if you really have an issue with a certain aspect of your body, a company like Atlanta Face and Body, could correct the ‘problem’ and give you some instant confidence. Just make sure that you aren’t the kind of person who will fix one ‘flaw’ only to find ten more.


No matter what shape you’re in, making an effort to exercise moderately can boost your confidence and make you feel more comfortable in your own skin. It's empowering to take your body goals into your own hands and training it to be strong, fit, and, attractive.  This will make all the difference in how you feel about yourself.

See a Therapist

If you really struggle with your body image; for example, being unhappy even if you lose all the weight you want to or having the kind of looks that most people could only dream of, yet all you see when you look in the mirror are flaws, it is possible that you might need a little extra help from a therapist like those at EBT Seattle. It’s not uncommon to have disordered thoughts about your body, and the right therapy and medication can make a difference if that’s the case.
