In recent years, the movement of body positivity has seen a boost in popularity and awareness, particularly across social media. There are communities of like-minded individuals coming together to help spread the word.
Self-love is is purely about how you feel about you, not what others think or feel. This sentiment is becoming more mainstream and helping people change their mindset about things like diets, obsessing over counting calories and watching the scales.
