A recent study of young adults showed that individuals who viewed their bodies through functionality reported positive perceptions about their bodies and what it could do. They viewed their bodies as resilient and enjoyed reflecting on what their bodies can do, such as dancing. On the other hand, individuals that viewed their body through focusing on physical appearance evaluated and compared their body to others and focused on what others thought of their appearance. They also viewed their body as a project, as in, something that consistently needs to be worked on to improve. Therefore, those who viewed their body by its functionality and how it aids them in activities they valued, had an overall positive body image.
