8/9 In Search of the Body Perfect

In this series on the Body and our personal Boardroom personality, we have seen how our thinking and behaviour will bring health or dys-function to our Body.  One of the biggest areas we see this is in our thinking about our own ‘Body Image’.

It’s all about Measuring sticks

We women have developed internal measuring sticks to judge ourselves, usually on a “1” to “10” scale.  So where do these images of perfection come from?   You’ll find them all around us: Magazines and movies, FOO, peers, culture in general and so on.  In fact, it isn’t really a new phenomenon. You can find such images in all the ancient cultures, from Diana to Venus.  Small and large idols, pictures and clay model show us the perfect female form.
