Body image is defined as what you believe about your own appearance, how you feel about your body, and how you feel in your body.

Improving one’s body image can be a daunting task regardless of one’s mental health. It can often be the final hurdle in one’s recovery from an eating disorder. Just like any other big undertaking, taking small steps toward an ultimate goal is a good option to consider when tackling body image issues.

Here are 3 small steps you can take to empower your body image:

1. Limit screen time. Studies show the more we screen time we engage in (i.e. smartphone, television, computer) the worse we feel about our body. We subconsciously measure our own physical body against those we see. Set a daily time limit of screen exposure and honor it. Unplugging for a weekend is also a great experience if you’ve never tried it.

2. Limit time in front of the mirror or around mirrors. This can help develop a different relationship in and with your body. Rather than experiencing it from the outside looking, begin living from the inside out.

3. Practice mindfulness by asking yourself on a regular schedule how you feel in your body. This is another way to start living “in” your body by reconnecting to its physical and emotional cues rather than allowing what we perceive from the outside to determine how we should feel. Set a reminder on your phone each day to check-in with yourself to practice reconnecting your mind, heart, and body.
