[CHAT] Body Image

It’s summer here in Australia, and with summer comes pressures and expectations about what your body should look like and what you should be doing. These pressures can come from lots of places – from yourself, to your mates, to the ads you see on TV. People think that they have to get the perfect "bikini body", or that it's time to lose weight, or that they just need to look their best when they're down at the beach with their friends.

Does society (and ourselves) put unreasonable expectations on us? How can we overcome this? How can we stay positive about our body?

All of this can be a bit overwhelming and confusing, so join us here on Monday 27th February at 8pm AEDT, or click 'Reply' to start the chat now!

What an excellent blog post @roseisnotaplant! I gave you three high fives for it! I had to grow an extra arm for this to be possible.

Everyone is beautiful in our own way, not based on someone else's opinion

Hey everyone,
