Developing positive body image

The fact that teenage years are of ‘roller coaster phase’ of one’s life cannot be denied. The ride involves ever changing interests and desires, sexual maturity, increased energy, rebellious behaviour and what not.  

It is a time-period of rapid physiological changes too. Bodily changes include changes in height, weight, pubic hair, prominent facial hair, onset of menstruation, breast development in girls, etc. 

Adolescent needs can be laid down in following three categories:

  1. Need to stand out: This refers to establishing an identity of your own, be independent and autonomous.
  2. Need to fit in: To gain validation, acceptance and sense of belongingness among their peers.
  3. Need to achieve: To gain skills, polish their abilities and shine on academic or professional front.

Being conscious about one’s body type or body shape/ skin colour body hair etc. is very common. Especially during teenage, one’s physical appearance is perceived as symbol for their desirability, power and success. Teenagers can’t stop thinking about perceived defects or flaws in their physical appearance. Body image issues can be extremely draining experience. Poor body image is linked with low self-esteem, decreased confidence, depressive feelings and can lead to eating disorders.
