30 Days to love your body

What if you had 30 days to transform your relationship to your body? What if your life was at stake? Would you step outside your comfort zone? What would you be willing to do? Well, your life is at stake! Every moment you spend bashing your body in any way, shape or form, is a moment you have lost. Let this be the year you stop beating yourself up and start living in self-acceptance. Not only will you direct your energies in new and exciting ways, you'll have the best body ever because you'll have shaped up your body image. Here's a 30-day plan to take back your body and love it inside and out.

Week 2

30 Days to love your body

Day 8: Take a nature day. Look at the sky, notice the trees, smell the flowers. Take off your shoes -- walk through the grass and feel the earth under your feet. Enjoy the sunshine, or the rain.

Day 9: Write a letter. Write all of those postcards, letters and thank-you notes on your to-do list.

Day 10: Reconnect. Call your best friends from high school or college and catch up.

Day 11: Recognize good qualities. Make a list of the top 10 people you respect. Write the qualities you admire in each of them, beginning the sentence with "I admire ____ because _____ ."

Day 12: Recognize your worth. Take your list from Day 11 and face yourself in the mirror, looking deeply into your eyes, and read the list to yourself. You can only recognize something good in someone else if you possess that quality yourself -- even if it's just a little.

Day 13: Diet no more. Get rid of those weight-loss books and magazines! Focus on pleasurable, healthy, balanced eating.

Day 14: Put on your favorite outfit -- proudly wear what you want to wear, not what you think you should wear.
