I designed some positive body affirmation quotes wallpaper just for you! Why? Because picking up your phone can often result in leaving you with feelings that aren’t so positive about your body.
We live in a social media world that is driven by aesthetics and images and if we’re not careful we can get sucked in to feeling like we don’t measure up. That we’ll never be beautiful or skinny like the influencers we see on social media. It can be so destructive to our body images and leave us feeling in a slump when we put down our phones.
Here are 3 Tips for you to help you avoid the Social Media Slump.
- Unfollow any accounts that make you have any sort of negative feelings pop up as you scroll through. Your brain may not even know why you have those negative feelings but your heart does so listen to it and unfollow.
- Diversify your social media feeds so that you are seeing all types of bodies as you scroll. Body diversity is beautiful. This is really helpful in reprogramming our brains so that it knows all body types are beautiful and have worth. When we are used to seeing only one body type we can start to feel like we’ll never be worthy of love, compliments, or relationships unless we look like that. P.S. That is diet culture! It is helpful to follow hashtags on Instagram such as #bodykindness, #bodyacceptance, #bodyneutrality.
- Remember that what you see on social media is often times photoshopped, posed, staged, and not real life. There are camera angle tricks, filters, editing apps, and clothing tricks that make it seem like things are better than they are. It is helpful when you see an image that makes you feel bad about yourself to say out loud, “This is not real life”. It is powerful for your brain and body to hear those words out loud.

And something that I have found useful and has been scientifically proven is the use of positive body affirmations. Saying them out loud or seeing them in image form can help rewire our brains to have positive feelings about our bodies.
