The way you see yourself can totally affect the way you interact with others, your self-esteem, and your mental health. This is why it’s sooo important to see yourself in a positive light and take steps to build a loving and trusting relationship with yourself! The body positivity movement works to change unrealistic beauty standards and emphasize that everyone has an amazing body. Body positivity is about saying buh-bye to those haters, shamers, and unrealistic standards set in society. Let’s be real, they are both physically and mentally unhealthy. Instead, it’s about loving your body no matter what size, form, or ability you have.

Working toward having a positive self-image is a journey, but once you start seeing the positive effects of alllll that self-love, the haters will never be able to get you down again! And if you’re looking for a place to start, we’ve totally got you covered! There are tons of body positive podcasts on Dear Media made by real people that experienced real body-confidence issues that can empower you to improve your sense of self-love and self-worth. So with that, check out our top body positivity podcasts below!
