Having a Healthy Relationship with Your Body: Learning from Bethany Hamilton, Ta-Nehisi Coates, and Mirna Valerio
In today’s world, it’s tough to love our bodies.
Most of us do not fit the Hollywood mold, and we are constantly bombarded by sales pitches for products, diets, and workout regimens that will help us to get the body we’ll finally love.
But will they really? And will we really? In reality, we need self-love now in order to love whatever comes down the road, or we’ll never be content. There will always be something that isn’t quite right or perfect.
And guess what? We teach that to our kids.
Our children aren’t born with body issues. We teach them that. Either directly or through outside influences that we allow into our lives.
So what do we do?
We change the curriculum.
In this blog post, we’re looking at some incredible people that teach us how to love our bodies now along with an activity and some discussion questions to talk about with your kids.
What do you think about this? How has the world affected your ability to love your body?
