Live GR: Body Image, 13th July 7:30 AEST

Hey guys!

 

This Monday we're going to be having a live Getting Real chat surrounding Body Image! Smiley Very Happy

The way we view ourselves and our bodies is so important to talk about, because it directly impacts the way we think about ourselves and the way we treat ourselves! 

 

We're all so different in lots of beautiful ways! But a lot of the time we're fed this toxic idea that there's a right or wrong way to look and that's just not true! Heart Things like advertising and social media, as well as other societal pressures, really feed into this and it's hard to escape the negativity when it comes from so many different places Smiley Sad So we'll be chatting about ways to challenge this!

We've been talking a lot about Body Image here on RO this month Heart
There's the awesome Guide To: Body Image!

as well as the Let's Chat: Body Image ! Smiley Very Happy

Which you should check out! Smiley Very Happy Heart

 

We'll be kicking off this live chat at 7:30 pm AEST and we'd love to see you all there! Heart

 

Body Image can be a super confronting issue to talk about, so if this GR brings up some triggering feelings both Kids Helpline and the Butterfly foundation are really good resources to reach out to! We really want this GR to be as safe and welcoming for everyone as possible! Heart So we also encourage you to check out our community guidelines here as well as RO's 6 ways to be body positive page Heart

Welcome to tonight's chat Smiley Happy

 

I've previously looked at some of these, but been a while so they're not familiar in my short term memory Smiley Tongue

 

However, I do recall seeing the 6 ways to be #bodypositive image around somewhere recently. And I really like that info graph Smiley Happy

Thanks guys! Heart 

 

question one: What is body image?
If I had to put my own definition to what I think body image is, I’d say it’s the perspective on a persons own body or how someone sees them self. It can also be heavily influenced by a number of things and often compared to the standards set by society.
