Body Positivity – Time to Retrain Our Brains

Alright ladies, let’s talk about BODY POSITIVITY.

For those of you who don’t know me, I have always been a skinny girl with very little curves and this runs in my family. Or as they call us in the fitness world; an ectomorph.

For almost my entire life until the past year or two, I’ve been told to “go eat a burger” or “you need to put some meat on your bones” or regularly asked if I’m anorexic or even close friends stating they are “worried” about me and asking me if I’m eating enough/ telling me how I’ve “shrunk down”. After many years of hearing this, I started to believe it. I would constantly hide my body and would be afraid to be in a bathing suit around people as I was worried that my “skin and bones” would offend them.

What Integrity Means To Me

Integrity seems to be a big deal and one of the most commonly discussed topics in business. But do we all truly understand the meaning of it? And does this align with what it means to us?

Michael Jensen explains “The primary differentiation I make between integrity, morality and ethics is to distinguish integrity from morality and ethics. Integrity is a positive proposition. It has nothing to do with good vs. bad. Think for a moment about the Law of Gravity: there is no such thing as ‘good’ or ‘bad’ gravity; like integrity, it just ‘is’. Morality and ethics, on the other hand, are normative concepts in that they deal with matters of good or bad, right vs. wrong. Morality refers to a society’s standards of right and wrong behavior for individuals and groups within that society, while ethics refers to the normative set of values that apply to all members of a group or organization. Thus, both morality and ethics relate to desirable vs. undesirable behavior.”
