Why do we care about how we look? Since the beginning of time, we as
women have concerned ourselves with our appearance and how physically attractive we are. However, in these modern times the normal concern of caring about how we present ourselves has turned into an obsession for far too many women. In today’s media, “thin-is-in.”
Unfortunately several of us measure our body image on how we stack up against those bodies that have been cut and pasted into magazines or against our peers. When we view our body image poorly, that not only decreases general life satisfaction and happiness, but it can also cause severe eating disorders. Making a targeted effort to improve body image for ourselves and loved ones would be a smart, even life-altering thing to do.
