Fitness Queen Emily Skye On The Major Mental Shift That Changed Her Life

Plus, she lets us peek inside her beauty bag.

Australian influencer and creator of online fitness program Emily Skye Fit, Emily Skye, is no stranger to the spotlight. She boasts an incredible 2.7 million followers on Instagram and 76.8K subscribers on YouTube. Plus, she was recently named number 54 on the top 100 list of Australia’s most influential social media creators in The Influence Index, released by The Oz.

Instead of using Instagram as a ‘highlight reel,’ showing only the best bits of her life, Emily has never shied away from sharing the tough times as well. But, she hasn’t always felt comfortable being this open and honest.

Below, Emily shares why she so passionately advocates for embracing flaws and why we should all forget about chasing perfection.

“Being honest online is what feels most natural to me. I’m more comfortable doing that than posting polished photos where I’m done up. I’m trying to lead by example and help people feel more comfortable in their own skin.

“When I was younger, I used to compare myself to other people and be so negative towards myself. I was such a different person and I’ve come a long way because I chose to work on it every single day. I think of it like training at the gym – if you want to be fit, you need to consistently train. It’s the same with your mental health, you have to be consistent.

“I’m happy with the way I view my body now and how accepting I am of myself – I’m not chasing perfection like I used to. Now I want to be real, to show my previous self, my daughter, Mia, and others that all bodies are different. It’s about loving your body for what it does rather than how it looks.”
