Encouraging Gratitude + Self Love

Encouraging Gratitude + Self Love

There are pressures all around us, especially when it comes to body image. Dancers experience this all the time. It is easy to lose sight that owning a healthy, functioning body is a privilege. Teachers must instill a sense of gratitude in their students for their bodies, and remind them to practice self-love every day. Affirmations are a fantastic tool for building positive thinking pathways. A few positive affirmations include:

“I am thankful for my feet, which support my body every day”

“I am thankful for my strong legs, which help me to move”

“I am thankful for my beautiful body, which lets me express myself through dance”
