Body positivity, body confidence, self-love, and body acceptance – these phrases are always being thrown around and incorporating them into our busy lifestyles can be challenging. It’s hard not to be down on ourselves and these celebrities are showing us that even they’re not exempt from these thoughts.
The “Confident” singer hasn’t always been confident about her body and she’s been incredibly open about her struggles with mental health. At the Teen Vogue Summit, Lovato said, “We hear the term body positivity all the time. To be honest, I don’t always feel positive about my body. Sometimes I do not like what I see. I don’t sit there and dwell on it. I also don’t lie to myself…All I have to say is ‘I’m healthy.’ In that statement, I express gratitude. I am grateful for my strength and things I can do with my body. I am saying I’m healthy and I accept the way my body is today without changing anything.”
The Modern Family star has been so honest with fans about her health conditions, which started at birth. Like many who live with medical issues, her medical procedures have been a source of insecurity for the star in the past, but Hyland has decided to start loving her body. Recently, she went to Instagram and wrote, “To my fellow #invisibleillness warriors. It’s ok to be insecure about your body. Just remember to check in with yourself at least once a day and say thank you. Our bodies have endured unfathomable feats that our minds barely have time to comprehend what has actually happened.”
The Superstore star has decided to try something new this New Year’s, and learn to be more body positive. “I just made a choice. My New Year’s resolution this year was to not speak negatively about my body to myself or to anyone else. It’s really been a mindset that’s been really positive for me, and I think that as women, especially, we’re very hard on ourselves. Trying to change that narrative and focusing on the things that you like is a really powerful tool,” Ash said in an interview with US Weekly.
