Healthy Body Image Assessment

How Do You Define A Healthy Body Image?

A Healthy body image is defined by being comfortable in your skin, feeling good about everything you wear, and not paying heed to criticism. All of this means accepting your body’s natural shape, size, and imperfections, while also recognizing its strengths and capabilities.
A healthy body image is characterized by a positive attitude towards your body, which includes treating it with respect, nourishing it with healthy foods, and engaging in physical activities that you enjoy. It also involves understanding that beauty comes in various shapes and sizes and that your worth is not determined by your appearance.
With that being said, a lot of people, especially teenage girls are body-shamed all over the world. Nearly 94% of teenage girls have been body-shamed, according to a survey conducted by the National Report on Self-Esteem. Girls as young as 9 years old report some dissatisfaction with their bodies and their body image tends to grow steadily worse as they get older. Girls tend to struggle with body image far more than boys. Most body image feelings will stay with a girl into womanhood.
A girl’s body image is influenced by peers, media, coaches, parents, siblings, or other family members. Parents influence their daughter’s self-image when they comment on their own or someone else’s body shape or size. Do you promote a healthy body image for your daughter, are you yourself satisfied with your own body? Take our assessment and find out!
