Seventeen Magazine and Seventeen.com have started a project called the “Body Peace Project”, which is designed to be inspiration for young women to embrace their beauty and bodies an find peace within themselves.
The project features a series of videos interviewing some of biggest female celebrities, including Kim Kardashian, Jordin Sparks, Katy Perry, Shanae Grimes, Vanessa Hudgens, Selena Gomez and more, each talking about the issues they’ve had with their bodies, how they dealt with these issues growing up, and how they were finally able to find peace with their bodies.
It is true that we are our own worst critics and we can be pretty harsh on ourselves when it comes to our appearance, especially our bodies. It is important to find peace with your body and embrace every “flaw” you may think you have. I know that is much easier said than done and can sound cheesy and cliche, but the message is true.
So much of the criticism we put on ourselves comes from the idolizing of celebrities and the desire to look like them so hearing them talk about what makes them self conscious is almost refreshing and a great message to follow. Definitely check out the videos, listen to everyone’s story of finding body peace, and join the project!
What is something you are or were self conscious about? How do you find peace with your body?
