  1. Appreciate what your body can do like breathing, laughing, and dreaming.

  2. Keep a list of things you like about yourself that are unrelated to the way you look.

  3. Redefine beauty.

  4. Look at yourself as a whole person and not focus on specific body parts.

  5. Surround yourself with people who are positive and supportive.

  6. Do thought-stopping, which is to redirect your thoughts when it says negative things about your body.

  7. Wear comfortable clothes.

  8. Be critical of images, slogans, and advertisements. They exist to compel you to buy their products or services.
