22 Day Self Esteem Challenge

In today’s world it is hard not to be affected by the various ideas of beauty portrayed to us by the media. Everywhere you go there is something or someone telling you what beauty is and how to obtain it. As women, it is so common to fall into the trap of tearing ourselves down. We focus our time and energy on what we think we need to fix or change. And how many times have you received a compliment to only respond with a “Thank you, but…” and pointed out a perceived flaw to counter the compliment? However, it’s so easy to point out the positives and beauty of our friends and family. We want the people we care about to know how wonderful they are, inside and out.

 

Our studio is a place where we focus on building each other up, empowering each other, and cheering each other on. You often hear students complimenting each other and getting excited when one of their fellow students achieves a new goal. Instructors feel a sense of pride when their students feel confident, sexy, and succeed in and out of the studio.

 

From November 9 through December 6 we will be challenging our community to look at ourselves in a new light. This challenge will lead us through a path of self discovery and will reinforce positive self talk. Perhaps you will even learn something new about yourself! We strongly hope that you will join us as we work our way through, whether you post on social media, answer quietly to yourself, or share with the friends you’ve made in the studio.

You can follow our Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram accounts to see what the challenge of the day is. Make sure to use #IAmAradiaBeautiful so the Aradia studios and individuals participating  can follow you on your journey. If you choose to do so, you can also tag our studio with the possibility of having your posts shared. Please note there will be no trolling or negativity permitted. This includes unkind comments about yourself!

Going to tell you right now that the most confident person in the world has insecurities about something, or is self-conscience about something.

What advice would you give someone you know about having low self-esteem and low confidence?

Day 19 – Today you are going to accept that there may be physical, personality parts that you don’t like. What are those?

You may want to become more relaxed and bring yoga into your life, you may want to eat more healthy so today you are going to make a plan to do so.

Everything we go through helps us grow and evolve as people.
