Acquaintances can influence body image
from Psych Central
New research on social interactions and body image finds that who you hang out with makes a big difference in body perception and health behaviors. In the study, University of Waterloo investigators found being around people preoccupied with their body image was detrimental for perception of body image. However, spending time with people who were non-body focused had a positive impact in terms of body image and wellness behavior.
