Improving Body Image

  Welcome
Gratitude and showing gratitude for our body is mentioned often when in body image work. I have recently come across a few studies regarding gratitude: Emmons RA, McCullough ME. Counting blessings versus burdens: an experimental investigation of gratitude and subjective well-being in daily life. J Pers Soc Psychol. 2003 Feb;84(2):377-89. https://greatergood.berkeley.edu/images/application_uploads/Emmons-CountingBlessings.pdf Take away: focus on blessings may have an emotional and interpersonal benefit, especially towards a positive mood. Wood, A. M., et al., Gratitude and well-being: A review and theoretical integration, Clinical Psychology Review (2010) https://greatergood.berkeley.edu/pdfs/GratitudePDFs/2Wood-GratitudeWell-BeingReview.pdf Take away: gratitude protects people from stress and depression.
