The Love Your Body Project

The Love Your Body Project

So this is kind of off topic, but my best friend and I started this project called The Love Your Body Project. We went to Taste of St. Louis this weekend and took photos of some people, men and women, with something they love about their bodies written on a whiteboard. This doesn’t relate much to any of our readings, but it just really helped me, and others, to really put thought into what they loved about themselves. Most had absolutely no trouble coming up with something. We only had time to ask a few, but we’ll be doing it a ton more in the future. If you want to check out some other photos, or watch the array of people grow you could follow the Instagram page @TheLoveYourBodyProject.

  1. AHHHHH! I love this!!! I’m also very disappointed because I was at Taste of St. Louis, but I didn’t see you guys! Will you be going around campus? What prompted this? I think it’s important that in such a critical society people learn how to talk themselves up and recognize their strengths once again! Just speaking about yourself positively can have such a huge effect on the way you think of yourself and the way you live your life.

    • I’m not sure if we’ll do it around campus but it sounds like a good idea! We have been working on a movement called Weird is the Movement, showing people it is okay to be different and be weird. Shortly after starting that we came up with this idea because we both love the human body, especially our own. A lot of people focus on the things they dislike about themselves, where this allows them to focus on something they love about themselves. We’re both outgoing and love interacting with strangers, so it’s just a lot of fun to do. I’m sure you’ll see us around campus one of these days!
