focus less on your looks
and love yourself just the way you are
If the statistics are true, 45% of us are vowing to lose weight this year. And while we applaud self-improvement and self-reflection, we also support the growing trend of body positivity, which says: why not just be who we are, love who we are, and stop wasting valuable time thinking how life would be better if we lost X number of pounds, or had the so-called perfect body. Why not push the body shame aside, and remember what fun it can be to let go of insecurities and celebrate who we are, flaws and all? We also applaud these authors, who provide great support to those who’ve been told happiness lies with the perfect BMI—maybe happiness is instead learning to love yourself just the way you are. —Courtney, Audible Editor
