This design from Polish artist Bernadette, focuses on the societal pressure to have a perfect body, and the negative impacts that can have on mental and physical health. This applies to people regardless of their appearance, and while it is important to eat healthy and exercise, the constant media pressure and photoshopped images all over the web and magazines has a net negative effect on the mental health of millions who try to compare themselves to unrealistic standards.
Body Dysmorphic Disorder affects men and women alike and is marked by an obsession on how you look, often causing a person to view their body in a way that does not reflect reality. This could be a slight annoyance at a specific ‘flaw’, or thinking every waking moment about an aspect of their body they don’t like. (Mayo Clinic)
Despite what you may think, exposure therapy using a mirror is actually one of the better treatments for Body Dysmorphia. With prolonged exposure to yourself in the mirror, you can adjust negative feelings to comfortability. Mirror therapy, coupled with an understanding therapist, can help people have a more accurate depiction and appreciation of their own bodies. (Psychology Today)
