Now more often than not the first idea that pops into one's head about creating a new years resolution usually has to do with your body. Whether or not it is to work out more, to get fit or more toned, to lose that weight you gained over the holiday, or getting rid of that baby weight from 10 years ago, it always seems to revolve around trying to change your body or who you are to fit this ideal mold of what we are 'supposed' to look like. So part of getting into the body positive movement here is a list that I have come up with of new year resolutions that DO NOT revolve around weight or trying to fit into these stereotypical roles that society pushes upon us. If you have any more that I may have missed, then please give a shout! Also, let me know if any of these have helped you move toward more positive attitudes about your body!
