10 Positive Mantras You Should Repeat Every Morning To Feel Good In Your Own Skin

Loving yourself wholly and completely is a challenge for most of us, especially when it comes to our physical appearance. Bodies come in all shapes and forms—some muscled, some with stretch marks and others with hair in all the places that should be bare according to ‘societal norms’. But whatever the case may be, the body you have is keeping you alive and healthy—and you should appreciate it in all its glory.

It’s a tough process to start loving yourself, but the journey is lovely and full of learning once you embark on it. For those of you who shy away from clicking photographs or scrutinise every body part, we’ve got some feel-good mantras that could help you feel better about yourself. Negative self-talk can bring your spirits down and make you feel upset. To counter that, repeat these affirmations to yourself in the mirror every morning and see how your entire mindset changes.
