Being happy in our body can support our emotional wellbeing and help us to feel self confident. Often we focus all our self-worth on our body; whether it is our size, shape, skin colour, appearance, features, disabilities or differences.  

What we see online, see in others and what we talk about can influence how we feel about ourselves and our body.  The topics below provide support for a positive body image and tools for developing self-esteem.

Body Positivity

Things to remember

  4. Be grateful for your body as it gives you life.

You define beauty yourself. Society doesn’t define your beauty.

Say goodbye to your inner critic and take this pledge to be kinder to yourself and others.
