We'll give you the overview below, but if you're keen to read more about each of the 10 steps below please head over to Missi's blog.
“Loving yourself can be a hard business in our modern world. Social media can be a double edged sword of both personal and expectation. In a world of ever changing products and standards it can feel hard to find that peaceful place to just be unapologetically you.
I've been working on my body positivity for a long time now. Loving myself has become one of my most rewarding relationships I've ever become part of and its something I really like to use my space to promote others, both men and women, to embrace. Loving yourself truly is a life long romance and one that can really help improve your quality of life!
But self love can also feel like an illusive thing sometimes and many of us don't always know where to start! So in collaboration with Erstwilder's amazing new release with Body Positive Artist Mel Stringer, I wanted to share my 10 easy steps to love yourself better!”
