What we covered

Welcome to our guided session with Lyr, a CBT counselor, where we will explore tools for reframing negative body image thoughts and fostering self-love and acceptance. This session is designed to provide support and practical strategies for promoting a positive body image.

Understanding Negative Body Image

Negative body image can affect anyone, and it often stems from societal pressures, comparison to others, and internalized beliefs. These thoughts can lead to feelings of insecurity, low self-esteem, and even impact our performance in the workplace.

The Power of Affirmations

Positive affirmations are powerful tools for challenging and changing negative thoughts. By repeating positive statements about ourselves, we can rewire our thought patterns and promote self-love and acceptance.

Practical Strategies for Positive Affirmations

  1. Identifying Negative Thoughts: Start by identifying the negative thoughts you have about your body. This include: feelings of inadequacy, comparisons to others, or criticism of specific body parts.

  2. Creating Personalized Affirmations: With the help of Lyr, craft personalized affirmations that counteract your negative thoughts. These affirmations should be specific, positive, and focused on self-love and acceptance.

  3. Consistent Repetition: Practice repeating these affirmations daily, multiple times a day if possible. Repeat them in front of the mirror, write them down, or use them as daily mantras to reinforce positive self-image.

  4. Integration into Daily Routine: Integrate these affirmations into your daily routine. This can include setting reminders on your phone, incorporating them into meditation or mindfulness practices, or using them as a part of your morning or evening rituals.

The Impact on Workplace Wellbeing

A positive body image not only contributes to personal wellbeing but also enhances productivity and overall satisfaction in the workplace. By fostering self-love and acceptance, individuals can feel more confident, assertive, and focused, leading to better performance and stronger relationships with colleagues.
