Teens tear themselves apart over how they look. Wellcast offers five sensible tips to lose the self-criticism and build self-esteem.
1. Look inward and be your own inspiration—ask yourself what makes you memorable.
2. Don’t sacrifice your future health for your current figure—let your body take the shape it was meant to.
3. Don’t keep moving goalposts back—you cannot fight nature.
4. Talk it out with someone who specializes in health—speak to your doctor, coach, fitness instructor, or physical education teacher.
5. Step away from the mirror and help somebody else—get out of your head and go do something for others … everybody wins.
