body positive

Having or intended to have the effect of encouraging a positive view of one's body that focuses on overall wellbeing and self worth, as opposed to being self-critical or adhering to unhealthy trends or societal views of beauty. I try to maintain a body positive mindset, but it's hard when the media bombards us with idealized images of female beauty. It's nice to see some body positive advertising for once.
