Can we work together to change the narrative of body image, so that together we can get rid of superficial and misplaced priorities in our culture and in our communities? Let us pledge to love ourselves and our bodies as it is, even as we understand we are a work in progress. Take the Body Positivity pledge,* print it out and put it up where you can see it everyday, share it with your friends too:
I pledge to limit or stop editing my pictures and use less filters on social media
I pledge to stop speaking negative words over my body and banish any bad body thoughts when they rise
I pledge to work towards creating healthy conversations around body image in my community
I pledge to pursue a healthy lifestyle and honor my body without making it into an obsession
I pledge to keep brands and companies accountable when they promote products that encourage unhealthy body image
*Pledge points inspired by ‘YMCA Be Real Body Image’ Pledge
