“Bullsh*t Free Goals for the Years Ahead” HuffPost blog piece

For my latest Huffington Post UK blog piece I talk a bit about my opinion on New Year’s Resolutions. I wanted to provide some appearance based goals not just for this year but for many years to come, with a difference. Check out this short excerpt:

“I’ve had enough of the start of a new year (in fact, the entire 365 days) being centred around unrealistic, ancient, simply boring beauty standards and subsequent feelings of low self-esteem. Instead of aspiring to obtain ‘aspirational’ images of what is considered beautiful and ‘normal’, how about we endeavour to do more to really love and appreciate our bodies – and ourselves – no matter their current physical state?”
