Comparison is our worst enemy. Instead of looking at others and wishing you were more like them, work on becoming the best version of you possible. Make your body fitter and healthier instead of wasting time wishing your body was something it can never be...someone else's.
Perfection is a disease of a nation. We overlay our faces with tons of make-up. We get botoxs and even starve ourselves to become that perfect size. We try to fix something but you can't fix what you can't see. It's the soul that needs the surgery. It's time that we take a stand. How … Continue reading Boost of the Day #67: Perfectionism, by Julia Roberts
Behind the glamor, behind the make up, behind all those flashy clothes, there's an ordinary girl who just happens to have an extra ordinary job. I have seen young girls follow celebrities and try to be one of them. They try to attain perfection, have the perfect body, perfect skin tone. They aren’t fully aware … Continue reading Boost of the Day #66: An amazing message from Scarlett Johansson
It's all too easy to compare yourself to others, believe others are better than you and in turn, dent your self-esteem. Instead, we must learn to admire people whilst at the same time appreciating our own strengths and uniqueness. Everyone is different, and that friend of yours may have a fit body and perfectly styled hair, … Continue reading Boost of the Day #63: Admire > compare
Who would make more of an impact - would you prefer someone to call you pretty or witty? Slim or passionate?

By all means, work on … Continue reading Boost of the Day #45: Don’t be defined by your shell
I've mentioned before that attention seeking is often a big sign of low self-esteem. Emma Watson is such a wonderful role model for young women - she is successful, classy and intelligent. Her success comes from her ability to act, now through attention seeking 'Miley Cyrus/Kim Kardashian' methods. An air of mystery is a great … Continue reading Boost of the day #30: Air of mystery
I have loved reading the reaction to Protein World's advert: Are you beach body ready? The original ad is below: So the message is that to be ready for the beach, you have to have the perfect body. Nice. As if our self-esteem isn't reliant enough on looking skinny and having perfect skin, hair etc. … Continue reading Boost of the day #22: Each Body’s Ready
Another excellent example of a celebrity using their powers for good and spreading the word that... It's okay to be different - be yourself. Don't compare yourself to others, you're beautiful in your own way. Don't waste the one thing that makes you unique: YOU. Embrace being you. Thanks Miranda!
I love this quote from Emma Stone - I think the likes of her and some other female celebrities are amazing because they really focus on the idea that it is inner beauty that defines us, not what is on the outside. Another excellent one is Jennifer Lawrence calling out her interviewer on questions about her weight … Continue reading Boost of the day #15
Another one that's so easy to fall victim to, many of us have such high standards of ourselves that we expect constant perfection. Perfect hair, perfect skin, perfect body, perfect performance at work...I'm sure we can all relate to one of these, sometimes all of them! Imagine if you actually met someone who had the … Continue reading Boost of the day #12
