Kjerstin Gruys describes her 365 days mirror-free in her memoir "Mirror, Mirror Off The Wall: How I Learned to Love My Body By Not Looking At It For A Year." Here she talks about how avoiding her reflection made her more beautiful and why she learned to see her stomach in a new way. "I started to think of my stomach as something soft and huggable," she explains. "I focused on how it felt... it feels kind of nice and soft." Watch for more of Kjerstin's self-affirming story, including how her husband helped her avoid embarrassment while she avoided her reflection.
