Positive body image

We are bombarded every day with images of perfection: perfect lives, perfect bodies, perfect children, all held up for inspection via social media.

These images are hard to live up to, so perhaps it is no wonder that charities warn that mental health problems are rising, especially among young people.

It is, however, possible to take steps to protect yourself against the onslaught of perfection.

One valuable weapon to develop is a positive body image, an acceptance of your body and both its good and bad points. This helps you to become confident and comfortable in your own skin.
