Love Our Bodies, Love Ourselves is a 24 minute video designed to promote conversation about how we feel about our own bodies. There are several reasons why a person can develop negative body image, especially since we receive constant messages that a ‘perfect’ body can yield happiness, success and even love. The consequences of negative body image can be devastating: low self-esteem, low self-worth, and even developing an eating disorder.

We hope our video will encourage you to think more critically about what it means to live in a culture where media encourages us to have a negative body image, and discuss ways to overcome this. Our goal for this video is rather simple: to make people feel better about the body they have right now and ultimately prevent eating disorders.
