Men's Health Month: Men Have Body Image Issues Too

Overcoming male body image issues
- Surround yourself with supportive people who make you feel good about yourself.
- Watch your words. Whenever you have a negative thought, write it out. Seeing it on paper may help you realize how nasty you’re being. A good rule of thumb is that if you wouldn’t say it to a friend, don’t say it at all.
- Create a quick list of what you love about yourself—it doesn’t need to be physical. Shift your perspective and focus on what amazing things your body is capable of. Can you run around with your children for hours? Are you a great swimmer? Can you carry heavy groceries in one trip? Be thankful for the little things.
