Mention the words “self-care” and most people immediately think of a massage or other luxurious treatment at a beauty spa, where they can enjoy being pampered.
While I’m all for that, by thinking only of self-care in terms of a massage, my concern is that it becomes an indulgence reserved for special occasions or ‘every now and then’.
In a relatively short span of time, the body positive movement has morphed from a quirky idea that few were familiar with, into a mainstream concept whose presence is found in our every day.
From body image activists disrupting social norms, to front page stories, heated online discussions and even shaping our use of language. Terms like ‘body image’ and ‘body acceptance,’ once unheard of, now grace the lips of popular body positive advocates, plus size models, social media influencers and perhaps even the sleep-deprived post partum mum, navigating the minefield of accepting her changing body.
