Learn to accept your body without settling

It can be easy to overlook the distinction between accepting yourself and settling for your current situation. There’s nothing wrong with wanting to improve, but don’t beat yourself up in the mean time. By the same token, loving who you are doesn’t mean you shouldn’t incorporate more healthy behaviors into your routine to nourish your body. It’s also important to accept your past or any mistakes you’ve made, while acknowledging that you’re going to do better in the future. Ask yourself whether you’re accepting or settling frequently to make sure you’re on the right track.
