Mladá 23-ročná blogerka, Sara Puhto, sa zaoberá cvičením a zdravým životným štýlom. Svoj príbeh “píše” na sociálnej sieti Instagram, kde má už vybudovanú peknú komunitu, ktorá má neuveriteľných 318-tisíc ľudí. Svoj vplyv však využíva aj prospešne a snaží sa ľuďom ukazovať nie len to dokonalé, ale aj skutočnosť. Jej zámerom je poukázať na to, že nie všetko, čo vidíme na sociálnych sieťach je pravdivé, a teda by sme sa nemali nechať zmiasť. 

Sara pridáva do príspevkov koláže, ktoré zahŕňajú “dokonalú fotku”, ale aj realitu, kde nie je v našponovanej póze s dokonalými krivkami. Snaží sa tým zdvihnúť sebavedomie najmä mladým dievčatám, ktoré vidia v takzvaných “insta modelkách” svoje vzory a chcú sa im čo najviac priblížiť a podobať.

There’s always certain parts and types of bodies that are idealised and put on a pedestal which makes us dislike certain aspects of ourselves. In photos I constantly suck in my tummy or try and hide it and stick out my booty as much as possible. But why? We’re constantly flooded with photos of “perfection” on social media and see advertisements about ways to change your body to fit a certain idealised body trend. We constantly work on changing our bodies, but why don’t we focus more on changing the way we look at our bodies. Don’t focus on negativity, focus on accepting and loving what you dislike about yourself. You have this body and it allows you to live life. Look at yourself and realise that this is who you are, you are unique, incredible and capable of loving all your quirks. Most of the time we’re harsher on ourselves and our bodies more than anybody else’s. It's hard to remind ourselves that things like tummy rolls, weight gain and bloating are normal things to have and happen to your body. Ignore those thoughts that you have to be or look a certain way. You don’t have to workout like crazy and eat clean in order to wear a bikini on your next holiday to look good in photos, you don’t have to stress about going on a diet to wear certain clothing. Focus that energy on realising that you already are and have what you are trying to achieve because you and your body are already capable of these things, we just have to strip the idea that you have to change your body to achieve these things. We should all allow ourselves to experience life to the fullest without the fear of judgement about our bodies, by ourselves or by others. 🌿 ——————————————————— . . .

Arm fat 🌿 Ive noticed a lot of people pose in ways to make their arms look smaller and get highly insecure when their arms look bigger than normal. Due to weight gain, I’ve been highly aware of how I pose my arms in photos to make them look smaller. I would call myself fat and tell myself I look gross whenever they did look big in photos. But we have to remember that arms have fat and muscle on them and will look different in different postures and poses. Don’t view one as negative and the other as positive. Allow yourself to realise that other people don’t see us how we see ourselves. They don’t see the negative thoughts and insecurities we have. We don’t see theirs. We are over critical of ourselves and let that negative voice in our heads make us feel ugly. It’s possible to ignore that voice and avoid constantly looking at yourself negatively. Become aware of how lovely you are as a person. How amazing you truly are and that these things you pick apart are not as bad as you make them out to be. Realise that these things are actually completely normal and human. You are great the way you are and that negative voice can’t tell you otherwise. Don’t obsess too much over these things and miss out on all the amazing things in life that are right in front of you. 🌴☀️ —————————————— . . . #effyourbeautystandards #lovewhoyouare #beconfident #iambeautiful #flawsandall #bodypositive #nobodyshame #embracethesquish

Instagram vs reality 🌿 Society has put this idea in our minds that abs and having a flat tummy is the end goal, that that’s what perfection and beauty looks like and what we should strive for. I thought if I have abs I’ll never have tummy fat. They don’t tell you that having tummy fat is normal and that it’ll always be there. They tell you to get rid of it and be insecure about it. Nobody ever teaches you to love and accept it. Everyone has tummy fat and it’s completely normal, you don’t have to stress out about it. Next time you feel your tummy against your thighs or bunching over your jeans, instead of hating your body and thinking you need to lose it in order to feel better, realize that it’s completely normal and there is absolutely nothing wrong with it. It doesn’t change your worth, intelligence, competence or personality. You are amazing the way you are and don’t need to constantly put so much pressure on yourself to look a certain way that has been idealized into your mind. You are worthy and good enough just the way you are. 🌴☀️ —————————————– . . . #instagramvsreality #tummyfat #selflove #loveyourbody #spreadlove #lifelessons #stopcomparing #youaregoodenough

Bad body image days 🌿 Lately I’ve been having bad body image days. Everyone has days where they look at themselves and just see the negatives. I was struggling to get a good “Instagram” photo because I’m not as lean as I used to be. But I realised that even though I’ve been struggling to have the same positive viewpoint of my body that I’ve had majority of the time, there will always be ups and downs and you can’t possibly expect yourself to be completely content with what you see everyday 24/7. So here’s a reminder that it’s normal for your tummy fat to bunch up. It’s completely normal to gain weight and have difficulty accepting it because of the obsession society has with weight loss and being fit. But we shouldn’t have to stress about looking as lean as possible. Or stressing about normal things like tummy fat bunching up. We should be able to love and accept the body we have whether it’s like the left or right photo. You don’t need to constantly suck your tummy in and sit uncomfortably in order to look smaller. We need to realise that having bad body days is okay, as long as you acknowledge that it’s a bad day and those negative thoughts aren’t a true reflection of yourself. Your body is amazing no matter how it looks because it allows you to live and experience life 🌴☀️ —————————————– . . . #instagramvsreality #changethewayyouthink #focusonyourself #bodygoals #idealbody #powerofpositivity
