IFAD Discussion: Body Positivity | Jia Singh | Zina & Zoya Singh

STOP BODY SHAMING

Social media has made it difficult for us to embrace the skin that we are in because we are constantly comparing ourselves to airbrushed versions of people that don’t actually exist.

Body dysmorphia, social anxiety and ED’s like orthorexia are steadily on the rise. It’s really important to honour your body despite your fine lines, dimples, cellulite and wrinkles.

WE NEED TO TALK

Life can get a bit overwhelming and not all of us have the resources to seek counselling immediately. The first step to recovery and healing is to enable people to open up and talk about their feelings. We have to de-stigmatise mental health so people feel safer about reaching out and admitting we have a problem.

REEL LIFE VS REAL LIFE

It’s only natural to feel envious of your favourite blogger holidaying in the Caymans or your best friend hanging out on a yacht in Croatia. What we fail to realise is that we are only seeing the highlight reel. Reel life isn’t real life and influencers are often obligated to put their best faces forward.

Join us for a panel discussion on the occasion of International Flow Arts Day with Jia Singh, Zina Singh and Zoya Singh on dealing with body image in a healthy and positive fashion.
