Liberate Your Spouse's Body Image

Mar 21, 2013 / General     

Body image is how you picture yourself based on what you see in the mirror and by the reactions that you see from other people.  Negative feelings about body image are mostly experienced by women, but not exclusively.  If your spouse suffers from a poor self-image, here are three A’s that can help liberate your spouse’s body image.  First, affirmation.  Affirm them by saying things like, “My favorite part of you is [blank].”  Second, attention.  Make sure your attention and affections are focused on your spouse, and not anyone else. The third A is active.  Do things outdoors that you both enjoy.  When you do, your spouse will start to see their body image in a whole new light.
