9 in 10 women are unhappy with their bodies. Body positive beauty brand Dove found out that 96% of women do not choose the word ‘beautiful’ to describe how they look.

While only 5% of women naturally possess the body type often portrayed in Western media. Many resort to dieting to get closer to the perceived ideal body shape.

Contrary to what Khloe Kardashian is trying to tell us in her new show ‘Revenge Body’, dieting rarely leads to true happiness with ourselves.

Ayarza Manwaring found a correlation that shows that the more reality television a young girl watches, the more likely she is to find appearance important.

The lack of relatable images in media can lead to frustration and even body hate.

For Perelandra from Pamper and Curves, it took a deep breath meditation workshop to break through the emotional blocks of “a lifetime of [her own] body hate”. She said that she “carried around emotional injuries inflicted upon me by a society that had told me (both verbally and in a more nuanced form of messaging) that as a fat woman I was unworthy.”

Lifesize Magazine wants to make a difference and showcase what a body positive lifestyle looks like, and how a #BodyPositiveMoment can make us realise the beauty and strength of our uniqueness.

Read up on inspiring, strong women like Perelandra and many more to find out why everyone can have a #BodyPositiveMoment.
