The Connection Between Your Mental Health And Body Image

To stay physically and mentally healthy, it’s important for us to love ourselves, both inside and out. Over time, poor body image can have a huge impact on both self-esteem and mental health. If you’re unhappy with your appearance, it may be difficult to see the true value in yourself.  Body image undoubtedly affects our mental health in more ways than we once thought. Read on to learn more about what body image is, how it impacts our wellbeing, and even if hair loss treatment is right for you.

What Influences Our Body Image?

It’s easy for us to notice flaws about ourselves that are invisible to others when we look in the mirror.  But body image isn’t just about how we think we look, it’s also how we feel about our bodies.   Sometimes we are unhappy about our weight, blemishes on our face, or even how our hair looks.

Our body image is our perception of ourselves in our own head, and how it relates to our place in the world.  If we have a positive body image, we realize that we may have flaws or things we don’t like about ourselves, but we also realize that these things do not determine how much love, respect, or care we should receive from ourselves or others. 

How Does Body Image Affect Mental Health?

Over time, poor body image can lead to lasting mental health problems like anxiety, or body dysmorphia.  But if you’re unhappy with your image, what can you do to help yourself

  • Surround yourself with positive people who appreciate you for who you are on the inside.  
  • Redirect negative thoughts to something more positive.  
  • Make a list of positives about yourself, and focus on these.
