You Are Beautiful; Believe It!!

You are Beautiful; Believe it!!

How many times a day do you look at another woman and compare yourself to her? How often do you wish you just "had her legs" or "had the time like she does" to workout or “had more money to have a personal trainer?”

I have many female clients and recently I have had many discussions about our images of ourselves and how we are never happy with ourselves. I've seen so many people reach the goals that they have set but they are still not happy. I myself do the same thing and it has been on my mind a lot lately. Why aren’t we happy with ourselves? We are beautiful! We are special, individuals that have been created for a purpose and our families need us. We teach our children without even realizing it -- they see and hear what we say about ourselves and how unhappy we can be because of mere superficial images of ourselves.

One of the biggest and best parts of my job is to show my clients how amazing they are and how far they have come and just how important it is that they are taking time for themselves. I hear repeatedly how their family, husbands specifically, are 100% behind them being active and working out because they see the positive change in their wives. We are happier, more positive and our relationships are deeper when we are confident in who we are as women and individuals.

When you can take time for you and foster a good self-image and know what an amazing person you are inside and out that energy is felt by all those around you. Take some time to find out what makes you happy and what you love about yourself and your life. For me it’s my husband and my 3 beautiful daughters, as well as a passion for my clients and getting more people involved in a revolution in fitness and health. As far as what I love about myself, that takes longer to nail down. I'm happy with my figure and weight but many times I find small things to complain about but my husband always brings me back and I love him for that. Physical activity is not just for adults to gain back control of their lives and prevent or decrease physical health issues. Physical activity has been proven to increase self-esteem, self-image and decrease anxiety and decrease depression.

Many times we get so caught up in busyness of family, work, and programs for kids that we don’t take time for us. Once that happens things tend to head down hill physically and mentally. We need to “find ourselves” again and focus on what we love about us. Once you find what you love about "being you" then dwell on that, make time for yourself. Whether that is working out, yoga, massages, meditation, or many other forms of relaxation. Once you put these practises into place many changes will happen internally and externally. You will be more confident, you will show love easier, you will teach your children to love themselves for who they are and you will also help to balance out hormones internally which then helps us sleep better, have less belly fat, drop weight easier and have a healthy sex drive.

So many amazing changes happen just by focusing on the good in your life and getting back to the basics! You are worth the time, the focus and the results! Try these few easy tips and I promise, you will be smiling from ear-to-ear!
