Coping with life's ups and downs

Body Image

Many people worry about how they look. A person’s body image is often very different from how they really look. Images from the media often influence young people by portraying unrealistic views of how we should look. How we think and feel about our bodies is closely linked to self-esteem.

How to improve your body image

  1. Do not compare yourself to film stars or celebrities
  2. Focus on the best parts of your body and not the areas you are unhappy with
  3. Get active, taking part in physical activity will help you both physically and emotionally
