Is anyone else practicing HAES (Health At Every Size)? I've been easing into it all summer, along with doing a lot of other self-care, and love everything about it. I've also become a lot more aware of the steady stream of body hate that we wade through every day. Regardless of what our bodies actually look like (and completely overlooking the fact that they are these miraculous instruments!), there is always somebody telling us they're not good enough. Grr.

There have been a few pretty awesome plus-size swaps here on Craftster, but I'd love to have one open to loving on ALL body types. With the focus being positive, focusing on the worth and inherent beauty in everyone, regardless of their appearance. Would anyone else be interested?

I wasn't actually thinking of clothes, but more along the lines of journals full of encouragement, artwork, maybe shrines and jewelry. Nothing super-complicated, nothing high-stress. Just small things we could see every day to give us a little jolt of acceptance and love.

Don't get me wrong, I love me some fat girl swaps too!

But I think we all, regardless of what we look like, are bombarded by a lot of hateful messages about our bodies everyday. So I'd like to open up the body love for everyone. Smiley
