'It is my mission to help people become a lot more relaxed when talking about sex and sexuality. I am a fierce, fat, feminist with a wicked sense of humour and a taste for tattoos. I am a positive body image activist and an adoring pet owner'.
Ah January, the month where body shaming is at one of it’s highest peaks. The new year brings on a barrage of messages that you are simply not good enough and you must change to accommodate this new year. Food corporations are pedalling their new low calorie, chemically laden treat, the diet industry takes out waves of ad space in the media and people who have lost weight during the holiday period are held up as demi-gods/ goddesses.
In a world where being in love with your body takes a whole lot of work as it is January can be one of your greatest tests. It’s almost expected that you will become a brand new human being. This January, instead of becoming a whole new you, why not work on loving the you, that you are. You can start moving forward and building a more positive body image by starting small. So, today, I wanted to share with you some simple steps you can take to start building a healthier body image. They are like resolutions but much less painful and we won’t make you feel bad about yourself!
