Roz Purcell has been a champion for body positivity and self-care as of late, and she's back with another encouraging message ahead of the new year.
The influencer, model and author shared a picture of herself in a bikini on Instagram with a message reminding people to love themselves and their bodies during a time when we're put under certain pressures for the new year ahead.
She wrote, "Don’t do it out of hate. It's the last Monday of 2019 and I want today's #contentcontent to be about you.
"We've got a few days before the new year and you're going to be bombarded with messages of how you need to detox and undo your end of year celebrations, it's probably already started. I'm not here to tell you what to do with food or training. If u want to start training/exercising.... cool, eat more veg or eat differently not my business but PLEASE whatever u do....do it out of LOVE for your body NOT HATE!
"This is the same body your going to have for the rest of your life. Don’t treat it like shit, not fuel it right & overdrive it then expect it to make you happy. Be sensible this new year.
She added, "Your body is not just for show, it doesn't equal your self-worth, the majority of bodies we see are edited, remember this next time you feel like comparing yours.
"Lastly 2020, may it be the year you finally like yourself enough to stop being a d*ck to you & your body- like really how much longer are you going to put yourself down? You're running out of time to enjoy what life is about!
"Big yourself up stop waiting to change to do that, no one else is you and no one is getting another shot at this!"
