Data published by the World Health Organization estimates there are more than 1.5 billion, yes, billion people around the world who are overweight. That’s a whole lot of overweight people.
In my experience, issues with weight are directly connected with issues of self-esteem. The more self-esteem a person has, the better able he or she is to make healthy food and exercise choices.
As a concept, self-esteem isn’t complicated. It’s simply our capacity to love and nurture ourselves. But while the concept of self-esteem is straightforward, building our self-esteem can be difficult. People with low self esteem fall into the “oh-why-bothers” and make bad decisions concerning themselves.
The best way to get out of the low self-esteem trap is to engage in "esteem-able" acts. Instead of trying to think yourself better, the following concrete steps can move you along a healthier, more esteem-able, path:
The key here is to get into ACTION! Because low self-esteem is so deeply engrained in our psyche, we must take little steps to reach the summit of emotional and physical health. Along the path, you’ll see how your insides will guide your outsides. The weight will come off and you’ll radiate beauty from within.
