Hello everyone and welcome to the 2nd part with the wonderful Miss Lipo and the very important topic: Learning to live with lipedema.
We still have some important tips here that will help us to better deal with our disease but also with life itself.
Learning to live with lipedema! - Our tips for you
Make a list of positive things about yourself.
Listen to your heart or seek help from others. You will see, it will definitely be quite a lot.
Try areas of the body that you don't like.
For example, not seeing a slightly thicker belly in a negative way. What else is the belly, except z. B. "thick", it is also very soft or tender, feels good. Maybe you've already given birth to a baby. So this belly was a home for a long time too. So she created wonderful things. This can be applied to any region of the body. Make yourself aware, yes, it might be nicer if the stomach is a little flatter, but currently the situation is like that and I can also give my body nice things, not just negativity.
Regularly stand in front of a mirror and observe yourself.
How do I actually appear when I speak? What if I might look neutral? In my case it is e.g. B. Angela Merkel hanging corners of the mouth. I was approached so many times and everyone thought I was in a bad mood. I was never aware of that and so it was a real cycle. When I realized that, I was able to work on it. And let's be honest, who wouldn't rather be spoken to about their pretty smile than about a grim face?
The exercise with the mirror ...
... can also be tried out wonderfully with friends, husband, wife and parents. Laughter is contagious!
The same applies to the smile, by the way, to the posture.
Try to watch yourself in the shop window or mirror or video. NOT to make you feel bad then, but to work on yourself. For you and a good self-confidence. Because even the little things can change a lot.
Don't take yourself and your environment too seriously.
You just have to be able to laugh at yourself.
I really hope that these tips will help you a little. Now of course I am interested, do you have such little things yourself that make your life a little easier and would you like to share them with us?
