सोशल मीडिया ने जहां हमारी ज़िंदगियों को आसान बनाया है, वहीं कई स्तर पर लोग इन App के आने से मानसिक तौर पर जूझ भी रहे हैं. इंस्टाग्राम पर स्क्रोल करते हुए आपने भी कई लोगों की खूबसूरत तस्वीरों निहारी होगीं? लेकिन क्या आप जानते हैं कि रोज़-रोज़ इन आकर्षक और फ़िट चेहरों को देखकर कई लोग मन ही मन हीन भावना से ग्रस्त होने लगते हैं?

सारा पुह्तो 20 साल की हेल्थ ब्लॉगर हैं और वे अपने फ़ेसबुक और इंस्टाग्राम अकाउंट पर खूबसूरती के मिथक तोड़ रही हैं. उन्होंने अपने इंस्टाग्राम अकाउंट पर कुछ तस्वीरें पोस्ट की हैं जिससे साबित होता है कि कैसे अलग-अलग एंगल से किसी के शरीर में नाटकीय बदलाव आते हैं.

Period bloating 💁🏼🌿 If you feel like you’re gonna get offended or grossed out by this post then please stop reading now 😊 On the left is me a month ago not on my period (my periods are irregular) and on the right is me on my period! I’m sucking in my belly as much as I can in both photos, to show that the period bloat doesn’t go away, even when you suck in and I found this is the most accurate way to compare the bloat 😬 For all my people with periods out there, you need to know It’s completely normal to bloat before and on your period! You can gain anywhere from 0.2-4.5kg from water retention while on your period so don’t even worry about your weight!!! Also other factors like hormones affect weight, so just know that you’ll be okay, you’re not fat or ugly, you haven’t gained fat, it’s just your period! I wanted to let you guys know that even though I preach body positivity and loving yourself, I still get days before/on my period, where I think I’ve gained so much fat, think I’m ugly and feel guilty for eating unhealthy snacks. But please remember that that’s just your hormones and body preparing for your period that’s making you feel like that. You are still beautiful and amazing!! That weight gain is just water retention or bloating, it’ll be gone in a few days and don’t feel bad for eating whatever you’re craving, cause you’re shedding your old uterus lining out your vagina, it’s a lot to go through, so you eat those snacks!!!!!! And if anyone tells you, you look gross or are gross for having your period, then just walk away, you don’t need that kind of negativity in your life 🙌🏼 don’t even get me started on period cramps, if anyone tells you you’re weak for complaining about cramps, smear your blood on them and tell them they’re weak for freaking out about a little blood and walk away (jk please don’t do that). Just know that period cramps vary from person to person, from no/few cramps to omfg I’m going to die and throw up everywhere from this pain, so don’t judge or compare pain. Periods are a tough thing to go through and vary from person to person. Just know that it’s perfectly normal and you are a strong and beautiful person!! 🌴☀️

अपने इंस्टाग्राम अकाउंट पर उन्होंने फ़िटनेस और बॉडी से जुड़े कई पोस्ट किए. उन्होंने अपनी इस तस्वीर के बारे में कहा कि अगर मैंने बाईं तरफ़ मौजूद तस्वीर को एक साल पहले देखा होता तो मुझे अपने शरीर के बारे में बेहद बुरा लगता. मुझे लगता कि शायद इतने साल जिम में पसीना बहाने के बाद भी मुझे किसी तरह के सकारात्मक नतीजे नहीं मिले हैं. कोई भी मुझे देख कर कह सकता था कि मैं जिम में केवल टाइम पास करने जाती हूं. लेकिन सच ये है कि हर किसी का बॉ़डी टाइप अलग होता है. ज़्यादातर लोगों का शरीर भी हर एंगल से आकर्षक नज़र नहीं आ सकता.

Booty pop 🍑🌿 I was scrolling through my old photos and came across these photos where I was trying to take one of those sandy bum pics 😬 I posted the right one back in January, but the left is the reality behind that photo ☺️ I still sometimes get a slight pang of sadness and jealousy when I see all the big beautiful bums on instagram and wish I could magically have what they have. Because sometimes I feel like all my booty gains are gone when I take photos where it looks smaller, but then I remember that I shouldn’t compare my body to theirs. I have a great booty and so do they! It’s all about posing/angles and nobody looks like that all the time. There’s nothing wrong with posting a good photo of your booty, you should post it if you feel like it! Just remember that when you’re scrolling through social media and see all the posed bums that you too have a great bum and that nobody looks like that 24/7 ☺️ It seems like big butts are the thing that so many people want currently. But remember that you don’t need a big booty to be beautiful. All butts are good butts ☺️ All of our bodies are different and you don’t need a specific body type to fit into what society defines as beautiful!! It’s stressful and so messed up that body parts and types are going in and out of style- before it was being really thin, now it’s having a big booty. That shouldn’t be a thing. It causes so much stress and self hate to people who do not have these things. I know it’s hard but instead of trying to obtain these things, love how you look now. Not how you’ll look if you loose X amount of weight or get a bigger booty. Because trust me when you get to those things you’ll just want something more. Be comfortable in your own skin no matter what angle, posed or unposed, and you’ll radiate beauty! 🌴☀️ —————————————— . . . #bopowarrior #bootypop #allbodiesaregoodbodies #bootyfordays #bootybuilding #instagramvsreallife #beforeafter #selfconfidence #youareyou #dontchange #acceptyourself #bodypositive #lawofattraction #everyoneisbeautiful #selflove #bepresent #findyourself #dontcare #cellulite #effyourbeautystandards

फ़िटनेस के लिए पौष्टिक खाना एक बात है लेकिन शेप में रहने के लिए खाना छोड़ देना बेहद गलत है, आप भले ही कितनी भी कोशिश करें लेकिन ये सच है कि फ़िटनेस स्टार भी पूरे साल शेप में नहीं रह पाते, ऐसे में अपने शरीर से असंभव अपेक्षाएं आपके मानसिक स्वास्थ्य के लिए सही नहीं है. अपनी कमियों को पहचाने और अगर उनसे छुटकारा नहीं पा सकते हैं तो इनसे प्यार करना सीखें. समाज की खूबसूरती को लेकर बनी बनाई धाऱणा में Fit होने के बजाए अपना खुद का एक्स फ़ैक्टर ढूंढने की कोशिश करें.

Instagram vs real life 💁🏼🌿 If I saw the photo on the left a year ago I would’ve instantly thought so negatively about my body, that all my hard work from working out was non existent, that if someone looked at me they would’ve never thought I’ve been working out for 2 years and think I wasn’t trying hard enough. But the thing is is that all bodies look different. Nobody’s booty looks round and peachy from all angles. Nobody’s body looks the same from all angles. Don’t eat less or miss out on your favorite meals/drinks or over exercise to “look good for a holiday” or to “look good in bikini photos” because there will always be angles that are “unflattering” that might make you feel bad when you see them. Instead workout and eat healthy because it makes you feel good, not as a punishment. Start loving and accepting your body at all angles with all your “flaws”, instead of trying to fit into societies image of ‘beauty’ because that image isn’t inclusive of all individuals, which is so messed up. Don’t hate yourself just because of bad photos, they do not define you as a person. You look the best when you’re living life to the fullest and happiest. There’s no point in missing out on things and stressing yourself out so much. Life isn’t meant to be a competition on who can look the best and we should normalize not having to “look perfect” all the time because it’s a ridiculous concept. You are perfect the way you are 🌴☀️ —————————————— . . . #instagramvsreallife #beforeandafter #lawofattraction #bodypositive #bekindtoyourself #lifeisgreat #dowhatyoulove #veganbooty #youareenough #progressnotperfection #bodyimage #vegansofig #girlswhoworkout #selflove #youarebeautiful #veganfitness #loa #fitnessjourney #bopo #bodyacceptance #bodyconfidence #effyourbeautystandards #bepresent #justbe #moderation #balanceddiet #staypositive #thinkpositive

चूंकि आपकी तस्वीरें अच्छी नहीं आती इसका मतलब ये नहीं कि आप अपने आप से नाखुश रहने लगें. अपने आपको तनाव देना बंद कीजिए. आप सबसे बेहतरीन तभी दिखाई देते हैं जब आप ज़िंदगी मुस्कुराहटों के साथ बिता रहे होते हैं. ज़िंदगी कोई प्रतियोगिता नहीं है जिसमें आपको हर समय परफ़ेक्ट ही दिखना हो. आप जैसे हैं, वैसे ही बेहतरीन हैं. हां, बेहतर होने की कोशिशें करने में कोई हर्ज़ नहीं है लेकिन अपने आप से असंभव अपेक्षाएं हानिकारक है.

सारा की मुहिम का मकसद परेशानी से गुज़र रहे लोगों को आत्मिक संबल प्रदान करना था. लोग जितना जल्दी अपनी स्किन में कंफ़टर्बेल होंगे, उतना उनके लिए बेहतर होगा.
