Body image and self-esteem start in the mind, not in the mirror.
“I’m fat”, “I’m too thin!”. Do you hear yourself say these words to yourself or your friends ever too often? “I think I need to go to the gym.” is something most of us have tried (if unsuccessfully). This is body image, it is how we view our body. On the other hand, self-esteem is the way we perceive our complete self.
When we say that we enjoy time to ourselves while we binge watch a show, what we can say is “I think I’m an introvert” is one such example.
As experts put it, a healthy approach towards body image by exercising good self-esteem is a sure sign of good mental health.
