Every curvy woman has those days when you’re not feeling your best. On those days, it’s important to get out of your head first. I always start the day by looking in the mirror and telling myself just how beautiful I am. Another great tip is to write yourself a note reminding yourself of how wonderful you are. Keep this note in your bag to look at throughout your day or take of picture of it and use it as your screensaver. I’ve also noticed that random acts of kindness help get me out of my head. It can be something as simple as calling a friend or family member to check in or to say “I love you.” And finally, do something nice for YOURSELF. You deserve a treat. Go see a movie, get a manicure or just take a walk. But don’t forget the most important thing…you’re smart, you’re beautiful, you are more than numbers on the scale. Live for today, love your body today and let’s Go Curvy!
But this still doesn’t tackle the issue of what to wear on days like these. Here are my five go-toitems that will put that bounce back to your step.
