Now that the summer season is coming slowly but surely, I’m sure I’m not the only one low-key stressing about my “summer body” and its state of readiness. Living in a city which reaches 35ºC+ and has easy access to beaches, I know this is something that I won’t be able to avoid for long. After many fights with myself, my family and my boyfriend on whether or not my body is desirable, I realized this type of thinking has to end. Yesterday. I unfollowed around 100 accounts that boasted “perfect” and sculpted bodies, which I am sure fell victim to Face tuning and Photoshopping. Instead, I have started following accounts of women who love their bodies and themselves, regardless of curves, size, and the number on the scale. So if you are like me and need some body positivity in your life, check out these incredible ladies below!
(Note: Body positivity and diet culture are topics I would like to explore more in depth in coming articles, so stay tuned. I thought this would be a good starting point for both Second Nature and you guys.)
