Be-YOU-tiful WEEK 2016: Febuary 8-February 12
as part of National Eating Disorder Awareness Week
THROUGHOUT THE WEEK
Body image is how you see yourself when you look in the mirror or when you picture yourself in your mind. It encompasses:
- What you believe about your own appearance (including your memories, assumptions, and generalizations).
- How you feel about your body, including your height, shape, and weight.
- How you sense and control your body as you move. How you feel in your body, not just about your body.
Use the hashtag #BeYOUtiful to learn more about body image, share your own story, post your support or reflect on information you have learned.
