Body Image

Lots of us are influenced by things around us such as social media. Social media does promote a so-called perfect figure. Do you feel yourself comparing your body with things you see every day? If you do, you’re not alone. It is a very common thing to do which I think we are all guilty of at times, but it can impact on our mental health.

These thoughts and feelings might crop up at specific points in people’s lives such as puberty or can be a continuous feeling. This can cause anxiety, low self-esteem, eating problems and obsessing over how you look.

But it is important to remember when to notice if social media is impacting the way you feel about your body, maybe it would be prudent to limit the hours you spend on social media or to unfollow accounts that bring up these negative feelings.

What would you say to a friend who was struggling with how they look? It is important to remember this when negative self-talk is happening.

NLP can help through changing the way you think which will intern change your emotional state and therefore the negative feelings you harbour about yourself.
