Health Tip: Build a Healthy Self-Image
Focus on the positive
-- Diana Kohnle

(HealthDay News) -- It may be difficult to be happy with what you see in the mirror, but a healthy self-image will help you care for yourself.

The Cleveland Clinic recommends:

  • Jot down a list of positive qualities you see in yourself. Ask loved ones to share what they think are your positive qualities.
  • Create goals that are attainable and that you can easily measure. Work on improving your strongest qualities.
  • Consider and address any distorted thoughts you have about yourself. Think about how any labels that stuck during childhood have affected you.
  • Don't compare yourself to others.
  • Focus on the fact that you are your own unique person, and acknowledge strides you have made.
