This month I’ll be talking about your feelings about your body. I hope you take this advice seriously from me. You see, I’m someone who shares a lot of your concerns. I’m bald, clumsy, was no good at PE, I wear glasses and have an accent – and guess what? I’m writing advice for CBBC, so it can’t be that bad can it?
So much of what upsets us about our bodies is our feelings about our bodies. Most of what gets us down is the thoughts in our heads, not stuff to do with our bodies themselves. We get upset when we compare ourselves to others and think we should be something that we are not. The trick is to learn to accept yourself and focus on the things you feel positive about.
