What Is Body Neutrality, & Should We All Be Practicing It?

If you follow and read my blog, you know I’m always talking about being body positive. But recently, I’ve dug into a new, similar concept called ‘body neutrality.’ But what is body neutrality, and should we be practicing it?

I did some research, and the short answer is… absolutely. Essentially, body neutrality aims to encourage us all to accept the body we are in and focus on its achievements rather than its appearance. For example, thinking about what our bodies can do for us, as opposed to the way they look.

To be honest, this has given me a whole new outlook on what I preach. Because the thing about body neutrality is that it makes it OK to have days where you don’t love your body. Because we all have those tough days, we all have our moments. But we have to remember what our bodies DO for us – not just what they look like.

Don’t get me wrong, I still am preaching for us all to be confident in our own skin, that is for sure. I just think it’s important to practice body neutrality as well – so that we don’t feel guilty on days where we’re not feeling body positive, but instead appreciate our bodies for all they can do and are. So, I guess I’m body-positive-neutral? I hope you’ll join me.

XOXO
