Body-Positive Mantras

No matter what happens, if you can keep the bigger picture in mind, it will help you put your successes and failures into perspective. “I always repeat this mantra when I am hitting the wall, mentally or physically. I have had some struggles with my health over the past few years, including needing four surgeries. If Darwin were to look strictly at my genetic makeup and my family tree, he would probably predict that I am already dead. I am, by all medical accounts, a Darwinian fail. However, I believe that I am more than just biology. My body is also defined by my adaptability, perseverance, and strength. So while I am frustrated with my body and not always where I want to be, I have faith that I will get there.” — Krysten Bishop, breast cancer and heart disease survivor, health and fitness motivational speaker
