Body Neutrality Will Help Moms Be More At Peace, Here's What We Mean
Body neutrality is the response to the body-positive movement. It's where individuals are supposed to be fully accepting of their bodies and what they can do for them. On the other hand, body positivity is supposed to mean that all body types and sizes are equally gorgeous. In the body-positive mindset, you're supposed to love all bodies of all sizes and love your own body at all costs. While that is an important and valid message, it's all easier said than done and actually harmful. Many moms struggle with finding this happiness and body positivity within themselves because we don't live in a world where being body-positive is easy to do. That in itself can affect your mental health.
