More Than a Body: Your Body Is an Instrument, Not an Ornament

(Inbunden)
Beskrivning:

How do you feel about your body?Have you ever stayed home from a social activity or other opportunity because of concern about how you looked?Have you ever passed judgment on someone because of how they looked or dressed?Have you ever had difficulty concentrating on a task because you were self-conscious about your appearance?Our beauty-obsessed world perpetuates the idea that happiness, health, and ability to be loved are dependent on how we look, but authors Lindsay and Lexie Kite offer an alternative vision. With insights drawn from their extensive body image research, Lindsay and Lexie - PhDs and founders of the nonprofit Beauty Redefined (and also twin sisters!) - lay out an action plan that arms you with the skills you need to reconnect with your whole self and free yourself from the constraints of self-objectification.From media consumption to health and fitness to self-reflection and self-compassion, Lindsay and Lexie share powerful and practical advice that goes beyond "body positivity" to help readers develop body image resilience - all while cutting through the empty promises sold by media, advertisers, and the beauty and weight-loss industries. In the process, they show how facing your feelings of body shame or embarrassment can become a catalyst for personal growth.
