Body Image

Body Image

Body image is the way we feel about ourselves.  It can be how we perceive ourselves, or how we imagine other people see us.  It can affect all bodies, regardless of shape, size, and/or gender. Body image can be positive or negative, depending on one's self-esteem, life circumstances, mental health, and various other factors. It can fluctuate during our lives, and can be influenced by our world around us. It is important to remember that bodies naturally come in different shapes and sizes and body diversity is something we should appreciate and celebrate!
