How do you look in the mirror?

How do you look at yourself in the mirror?
Do you:
a) segment your body
b) look at it as a whole

Did you know when you have a more negative body image, you tend to segment your body into body parts? When you have a positive body image, you have a more general eye pattern and see your body as whole.

So next time you look in the mirror, stop focusing in on the part of your body you hate most, and see your body as a whole.
Broaden your focus from that imperfection that you are so fixated on and see the big picture. Quite literally. Whilst focusing on your reflection, spread your awareness to the four corners of the room. This forces your eyes into peripheral vision and will help a lot.

I know some people believe in hiding mirrors for body positivity but I don’t. You can’t love your body if you don’t like what it looks like.

You don’t have to like what you are looking at but you have to find value in the body you are seeing. Your body is worth something. #ScarredNotScared
