In Building Positive Body Image In the Information Age | Free Health Article for May 2019, the JH explain:

“In the information age, every person every day receives on average 105,000 words of communication through media, internet and mobile phones apps. Add images and graphics to that, and each person is exposed to around 34Gb (gigabytes) of information a day – enough to overload a laptop within a week. All this information can affect body image and behaviour, and often in a negative way. Having a poor body image can diminish your self-esteem and, in turn, your self-care. In contrast, having a healthy body image means feeling comfortable about your body, which can help you to maintain good health”.
