Focusing on a Healthy Body Rather than a Fashionable Body
People have been concerned about their bodies for years. Think of all of the times that you’ve heard someone fret about their weight, their body shape, their height, their muscle mass, their fat distribution, their skin tone or endless other supposed “problems” with their appearance. This isn’t all too surprising. There are numerous industries out there that rely on people’s lack of self-confidence and self-acceptance to thrive: the beauty industry, the fashion industry, the plastic surgery industry… the list goes on. Sure, we may all have areas of ourselves that we want to improve on. But rather than focusing on achieving impossible beauty standards set out by the media, how about we focus on our health, fitness, and wellbeing instead? Sure, you can go to a surgeon and go under the knife to achieve a certain look. But it’s not going to help you live a healthier and more fulfilled life. It’s time that we start focusing on having a healthy body rather than a fashionable body. Some of the most common body concerns tend to revolve around fat and weight. So, for now, let’s focus on cellulite and extremes of weight.
Cellulite tends to be a problem that people focus on with appearance in mind. These small dimples are often criticised as unattractive. However, you should be less focused on the aesthetics of cellulite and more concerned with its causes. Myths make out that cellulite is the result of toxins or being overweight. But there is no evidence to support this. In fact, it’s not necessarily indicative of an unhealthy body. It’s more to do with fat distribution and how your fat is stored. So stop worrying!

Being Underweight or Obese
We all have different body shapes. We distribute our fat in different ways and have different figures. Some of us will naturally be very slim. Some of us will happen to be a little larger. However, extremes of weight on either end of the scale are to be avoided. If you are underweight or obese, it’s important to know that you are opening yourself up to a whole host of health problems that could easily be avoided nine times out of ten. Being underweight could result in malnutrition, vitamin deficiencies, anemia, osteoporosis, decreased immune functioning, increased risk of complication during surgeries, fertility issues, or growth and development issues. Obesity can come hand in hand with increased blood pressure, type two diabetes, heart disease, strokes, sleep apnoea, fatty liver disease, and kidney disease. All of this things should be actively avoided. If you fear that you’re underweight or obese, visit your health professional or dietician and ask for a check-up. They will be able to assess your BMI and give you a plan for a healthy balanced diet and exercise regime that will help you to fall into the parameters of a healthier weight.
These are just two areas of our bodies that we tend to focus a lot of our attention on. If you have any further concerns to do with your body or how it looks, make sure to do plenty of research. In some cases, you may be worrying needlessly. In others, you may have a few changes to make to ensure that your body functions to the best of its ability.
