Body Posititivity

The University of Alabama Counseling Center and University Programs hosted a positive body image event Tuesday, offering different ways of promoting body positivity for students along with food and smoothie samples.

It’s all part of National Eating Disorder Awareness Week, and Tuesday gave students a chance to take a look at their own self-awareness, and get some good nutrition tips too.

“We’re talking about the importance of appreciating your body and loving yourself not based on how you look, but just learning to love yourself in other ways because it’s not always about appearance,” said food nutrition student Laine Strobel.

Alabama is hosting body appreciation events throughout the week. Check out the Body Appreciation Week schedule right here.
