Five ways to love your body

Serena Williams was one of the six atheletes that recently stripped down naked for the cover of ESPN magazine’s upcoming “Body Issue”. This lady obviously loves her body and isn't shy to show off her muscular physique.

Serena has the kind of body some women won't be proud to embrace. But she loves herself well enough to embrace hers. Here are five reason why showing yourself some love will make a difference:

1. Laugh out Loud. This isn't just an Internet acronym spelled out. It's an action that will do your body some good. Don't be afraid to show the world your smile. It's contagious.

2. Have safe sex. Loving our bodies is about keeping them healthy and free from diseases. And besides, there's nothing like getting a two for one on Love Your Body Day.

3. Spend time with your family. Whether it's a pet or partner, your spouse or a sibling, quality time is a must-have in nurturing relationships which in turn nurture and love your body.

4. Listen to positive music. Developing a theme song can do wonders for your body esteem and your overall outlook.

5. Develop a creative outlet. Everyone needs a medium to express daily stress and frustrations constructively. Maybe you're a photographer, writer, poet or all three. Maybe you can knit, make shapes out of clay or finger paint. Loving your body is also about loving your mind.

N.B. To treat your body with respect. Give yourself a break from women's magazines and the mass media. Try a new physical activity just for fun, not to lose weight. Stop weighing yourself, and change your goal from weight loss to improving your health.
