Supporting self-esteem and wellbeing

Article from

The brand "Dove" has taken it on themselves to make a change. Have you seen their report from 2016 about the state of female body confidence.
I do not think the results are really that surprising, but at the same time it is quite overwhelming to see the numbers "on paper".

”Seven  in  ten  girls... - stop themselves from eating, when they are worried about their appearance, or otherwise put their health at risk by not seeing a doctor. For adult women it’s an incredible nine in ten.”
It's frustrating to realize how much energy is used on thinking about looks instead of happiness!

”Eight in ten girls... - opt out of important life activities, such as trying out for a team or joining a club at school, if they don’t feel good about the way they look”
I like that a brand not just thinks about earnings, but also realize that they have an opportunity to do good in the World.
Take a look their beauty pledges:
