Developing a positive body image

Everyone has their own unique beauty!

In general, the media highlight just one beauty ideal. They give us the impression that only one kind of body can be beautiful. In the end, we forget that everyone is a different shape. Everyone has their own beauty!

The media mainly show us slender, willowy women and tall, muscular men. In real life, not many people match these images! Nevertheless, many girls are dissatisfied with their bodies and want to lose weight. And boys are often unhappy with their height and muscles: they want to be taller and have bigger muscles – to have a ripped body.

Our advice: avoid comparing yourself with other people and don’t put too much emphasis on your body. Instead, develop your style, your interests, your passions. Your unique personality will make you much more attractive than a beautiful body!
