You should also fill your home with things that make you feel happy and loved. Surround yourself with body-positive affirmations, images, quotes, etc. Also, take some time for self-care! Get a massage, take yourself on a date, buy yourself some flowers…do whatever makes you feel good and special. You deserve it!
