Body Image & Self Esteem: Using Health and Nutrition for Motivation and Self Love
2 hour, Middle and High School Seminar
The Body Image and Self Esteem Seminar offers an innovative approach to the way in which we perceive our bodies. As rates of eating disorders continue to rise and exposure to damaging media and advertising increases, teenage girls are more susceptible than ever to low self esteem as a result of poor body image. So Fresh takes a health-centred approach to body image, offering an honest account of battles with eating disorders. Lauren Spicer helps students to realize the beauty of their bodies, the potential for health and nourishment as a source of self esteem and self love. Facilitators guide students towards rational and inspiring methods for seeking health, steering them away from the negative impacts of dieting and over exercise. This seminar ties into nutrition but also into the yogic concepts of self love.
