Navigating through a lack of social interaction

Something that has come to my attention as of late in a rather pronounced manner is evidence supporting the idea that a lot of us are seriously struggling with social isolation. As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have been told to collectively abstain from participating in social gatherings and activities to an extent, … More Navigating through a lack of social interaction

Why are we encouraging body dysmorphia in a pandemic?

Eating disorders are a sincerely cruel form of mental illness. They toy with our thoughts and emotions and often times (speaking from experience) leave a lasting mark on those they happen to take hold of. Performing somewhat normally on a day-to-day basis while living with an eating disorder is no easy feat, let alone in … More Why are we encouraging body dysmorphia in a pandemic?
