“I know that when I look after my gut, I feel better for it so I am hoping to use my own experience to encourage people not to overlook it and look at the small changes you can make that will improve your gut health.”
“We’ve given up enough over the last year so we need to be kinder to ourselves and look at all of the ways that we can improve our overall wellbeing.”
Tess Daly and has teamed up with Activia to spread the words on how to give ourselves some positivity in these stressful days as new research reveals legs, bums, and hands are the parts of their bodies Brits love the most.
A study of 2,000 adults found on a scale of one to 10, 65 per cent rated themselves in the top half when it comes to body confidence with a quarter stating they wouldn’t change a thing about how they look.
It also emerged that to improve their wellbeing in 2021, half intend to exercise regularly while 30 per cent plan to eat better.
But many are avoiding the temptation of quick fix diets as 47 per cent admitted they have never worked for them.
A quarter also hope to look after their gut health, with 50 per cent believing it can influence their emotions, leaving 28 per cent feeling stressed and 38 per cent tired.
Sarah Dossett from Activia, which commissioned the survey, said: “We believe that this year people shouldn’t focus on losing their gut but learning to love it instead.
“We are passionate about happy guts and know the impact it can have on our overall wellbeing and in turn body positivity.”
The study also found celebrities play a part in inspiring body positivity, with Beyonce and Zac Efron the most likely to do so.
Serena Williams, Giovanna Fletcher, Harry Styles, James Corden and Joe Wicks also feature.
