Ignore Media Image and Create a Healthy Body Image for yourself

In a recent article ,https://www.msn.com/en-us/health/wellness/the-death-of-the-bikini-body-is-the-best-thing-to-happen-to-fitness-in-the-past-decade/ar-BBXGYC4?li=BBnba9O researchers are continuing to impress that there isn't an 'ideal' body image to strive for when creating a wellness plan. For years, there has been a barrage of images, often altered from reality, trying to convince men and women that they will neither be healthy or find/keep a partner if they don't subscribe to a certain body type. This type of destructive behavior is a root problem to the lack of success of many new clients and also contributes to discouraging new clients from taking initiative in making positive changes in their life.
The best way to create a successful wellness plan is by following five simple steps:

1. Set realistic, short-term goals
2. Find things that you enjoy to do
3. Surround yourself with supportive people
4. Be honest with yourself about the time you can commit to making changes
5. Have someone in your life that can hold you accountable

There are any number of factors that can contribute to wanting to make changes in your life, but those changes have to come from a place in you that wants it, and not because you feel pressured to do something or because you feel manipulated into making choices. Your initial, gut instinct telling you how you feel about a change is usually the most accurate one. Making changes is at first a totally emotional experience, and accepting how you feel about change is better than taking someone else's image of what you should be. 

A few simple tips for trying to avoid the body image issue are: list your priorities that you want for yourself now, draw up a short plan about how you would like to achieve those things, and plan out your day in order to find time within it for your priorities. This also means: make yourself a priority. Not what someone else thinks you should be.
