Danica Patrick is highlighting the very important difference between what’s “real” and what’s “produced” on social media!
The 35-year-old admitted:
“I think there’s a yearning in the world for real. It gives me the opportunity for it to come straight from me and be real. I follow tons of people on social media who you feel envious of; they have the perfect life or they look perfect all the time, and it just seemed like the right thing to do.”

I kinda love when people do real vs produced shots. The difference between the two is lighting, pose, and clothes adjustments. We all want to look our best at all times, no shame in that. But don’t let someone else’s body put yours down. Use it for motivation. ├░┼╕ΓÇÖ┼ôKeep digging friends to be the best you! You own that! We all know when we are treating our bodies with the respect it deserves. It’s the one and only thing we own for life. ├░┼╕Γäó┼Æ├░┼╕┬Å┬╝├░┼╕┬ì┼╜A post shared by Danica Patrick (@danicapatrick) on Jun 20, 2017 at 8:36am PDT
Danica continued to share in her new interview:
“We can work out to make ourselves look as good as possible ├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥ and there’s nothing wrong with that ├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥ but the reality is I can hold a camera out in front of me and turn in a circle until I find the right lighting and find my best angle. And I can adjust my clothes to make sure that I just look as good as possible.”
But the professional race car driver also added it’s a journey to feel confident just as you are:
“I think being confident in your own skin is something that is probably one of the longest transition periods in your life that you have to come to grips with. I think it starts with positive self-talk, working really hard and feeling good.”
Hopefully she can inspire more people to love themselves, despite all the produced shots on social media!
