The Body Image Debate

 

Body image and problems with body image can cause huge problems for many people. The way that the human body both male and female is presented in the media leads to unrealistic ideals and to dissatisfaction with how our bodies should actually look. 

Learning to accept yourself as you are can take a long time though the emotional and wellbeing benefits of being comfortable for yourself are well worth it.

This article looks at 5 photos that have changed the way we view our bodies and sparked the debate about body image and how it is used in the media. A very interesting read and with the BBC also starting a season of shows about body image, maybe we can all come to appreciate our own unique bodies just that bit more!
