What Is Body Neutrality?

The term “body neutrality” gained popularity in 2016 when counselor Anne Poirier started leading workshops that help participants acknowledge that loving their bodies isn’t always a realistic expectation.

According to Poirier, for many people, “it’s kind of a long jump to move to body positivity from dissatisfaction”.

The aim of body neutrality is to encourage us to change the way we think about body, practice mindfulness, and allow things to “just be”.

The goal here is to step back from our self-talk about our appearance and allow ourselves to exist within our bodies without judgment, which helps free us to focus on things that matter most to us.

We may not always like the way we look, but there’s nothing wrong with that.
