The body positivity movement from the 1960s focused on ending the fat-shaming culture and boosting self-confidence.

While body positivity asserts that all bodies are beautiful, a later movement of body neutrality, says that we should focus more on what our body can do for us rather than how it appears.

One doesn’t have to have a so-called ‘perfect body’ to feel positive. Instead, we should be thankful for the positive things our bodies can do for us.

This is actually what we should be practising - being grateful for our bodies and the functions they perform instead of being focused on how they look.
