Body image is about how you feel about your body, not about how your body looks. We all have a body image and we all have to work towards feeling good about ourselves.
It can be hard to care for our bodies due to the messages from the media that sell us the idea that we are less than. Sometimes these messages come from other places as well: our peers, our coaches, our doctors, or our families.
Your body, your rules. It’s important to find ways of caring for ourselves, after all, we all get to value our bodies. It’s good for us! We all deserve the right to feel healthy and beautiful for whom we truly are.
