SUBMIT YOUR VIDEO
Tips on what to say in your video:
The main goal of this project is to encourage everyone to have a better relationship with their bodies. We want you to inspire others by talking about:
- What the circumstances were that led you to think you had a body image issue
- What the "Aha!" moment was that made you realize it was time to stop the madness and start accepting yourself
- What it was that led you to quit harming yourself and start loving your body
- How you overcame your struggles
Give anecdotes and be honest about what you went through. People love to hear stories of redemption. You can also simply talk about why you love your body and what makes you special.
Please refrain from talking about how to diet, what you eat, how much you weigh or how much you exercise. We want to steer clear of the negative obsessions that lead to unhealthy dieting and eating. We want to create a sense of community where we can all share our thoughts without scrutiny, criticism or negativity.
You may edit your video by adding music and effects, but oftentimes simple is best. What we are really looking for are personal testimonials, not just picture slideshows.
*Please note that while we would like to, we cannot promise to review all of the videos submitted.
