Things to think about… Where do we get our ideas for what we think looks attractive? Do other peoples opinions affect someone's image? How does media/peers play a role in determining what looks good when it comes to image?
Body Image The way you SEE and FEEL (height, shape, weight) about your body How you feel IN your body…not just ABOUT your body
Positive Body Image Most of the time, you see yourself ACCURATELY, you feel COMFORTABLE in your body, and you feel GOOD about the way you LOOK May not match your FAMILY’S IDEALS or the MEDIAS, but you learn to be PROUD of the way you look SEE yourself as you REALLY are…how you look, doesn’t determine your SELF-WORTH https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7DdM-4siaQw https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5o9Dp6D91fI https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7DdM-4siaQw https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5o9Dp6D91fI
Negative Body Image A DISTORTED perception of oneself. You feel SELF-CONSCIOUS, uncomfortable, or awkward in your body. Look in the mirror and see oneself or ones body parts as larger, smaller, or different than what they really are Feels like you don’t MEASURE up to family, social, or media ideals One may feel this way from time to time (it’s NORMAL), but if it CONSUMES you then that could be SERIOUS and may lead to other things
