As we continue our discussion on relationships, self-image is an important topic. Body shaming is on the rise in media today. However, as women of faith, we must present our bodies as a living sacrifice to God (Romans 12:1). A positive body-image builds our confidence and helps us to be achievers for Christ. Ms. Tina Moore Brown of DanceN2Shape. She has danced all of her life. It was natural for her to use it as tool to empower women and build their confidence. Ms. Brown is an author, confidence coach and licensed group fitness instructor.
It has been said that exercise profits a little, but it is still beneficial for our health. We need to be active for at least 30 minutes a day. Studies show that exercise helps to lower our blood pressure and lighten our moods. Ms. Brown created her program, GET TIGHT, from her personal pain of financial strain, verbal abuse and emotional stress. Known as the “exercise girl,” she was not moving her body enough and began to eat more fast food. Reaching her tipping point, she decided to reclaim her life and created a program to bring her mind and body into subjection to God.
Below are a few tips she shared to help you snap into shape:
1. Affirm yourself – Stop the negative self-talk and speak affirmations. Post sticky notes on your mirror and recite positive words to yourself at the start and end of your day.
2. Get moving – Exercise your body for at least 30 minutes a day by walking, dancing or stretching.
3. Set aside time to read the Bible and pray – Study the word each day and begin with a scripture.
4. Organize your day and evening by establishing a routine – Start with beginning grateful and end with being reflective on the blessings of your day.
Finally, self-care is crucial for women to have the energy needed to be productive. You can join the community and download the free workbook at http://bit.ly/gettightnow
