We explored what it truly means to have a strong relationship
We asked women across the UK about the most important relationships in their lives, including the one they have with themselves.
Embrace your inner and outer beauty
The results were overwhelming; with 86% of women admitting they could be kinder to themselves. In response, we have created a new holistic approach to build a stronger, healthier and kinder relationship between body and mind.
We teamed up with four leading bloggers to tell us how they felt after watching the #WomanKind video.
The 6 Kindness Hacks
Vulnerability, previously seen as a weakness, is increasingly being reframed as a great strength.
"There is a power in being vulnerable. If you run from it, you are going to make yourself weaker. If you actually face it head on and deal with it, it will make you stronger." Angie Greaves
Find Your Thing
In a time of such intense competition, rather than try and compete on someone else's terms, the greatest asset any woman has is to recognise what makes her her.
"The best way to feel good about yourself is to 'find your thing' and do it. Confidence in other areas of your life leads to confidence in your body. If I'm proud of myself, I find it harder to be mean about my body." Emma Gannon
Reframe ‘weaknesses’ as strengths
More and more, values such as empathy, collaboration and flexibility (more traditionally female traits) are being identified as the key values for success and growth within business.
"I think that a lot of these feminine traits such as empathy and nurturing and the ability to listen are actually becoming more powerful, especially in the workplace. They're becoming recognised as superpowers." Claire Cohen
Radical Bodily Honesty
Led by a quorum of artists and activists, younger generations of women are celebrating themselves in all their messy glory: from body hair to menstruation.
"I don't think radical honesty is merely a trend. I think it really is a growing movement. Amongst young girls, certainly it's a way of life to become more honest about your bodily functions now, which is a thoroughly good thing." Claire Cohen
Find Your People
Finding the right group of people - either online or in real life - is a way of being kind to ourselves.
"You are who you follow online, so, you can be a really positive person by following positive things. You could turn into a really angry person if you followed really angry things. I do personally curate what I see. I like to have control over how I'm feeling. I don't want to read something that'll make me feel awful about myself." Emma Gannon
The Weight Watchers Mind and Body Quanitative Study reveals that 53% of women sacrifice me-time when they are busy.
"Replenishment is key to kindness. It's a recognition that just enough is not good enough. Replenishment is this idea that there's such a thing as good habits, such a thing as being the best you. It's giving a gift to yourself and getting better at being you. Replenishment is making a space in your week for these things, whatever they are, that bring you back to a better self." Tom Chatfield
