4 steps to thinking healthy revealed
Segal said that many people have a complicated relationship with their looks, shaped by past hurt, fear, guilt, anger or frustration, but that could be repaired in four steps, which all work to confront negative emotions and change the way one thinks, News.com.au reported.
First step is that one should focus on improving their confidence, standing up for themselves, setting better boundaries and question their motivation.
Step two is releasing the emotion, for example when one has identified the feeling, they should try to physically release it. One technique is to do exercise like running, boxing or dancing.
The next step is to discard one’s old ways. If deep down they’re feeling inadequate and worthless, people will allow others to treat them that way.
Reject perfectionism and ensure making time for themselves is a daily necessity rather than a luxury.
The last step is to embrace self love, by treating oneself with compassion and kindness.
