OUS event about positive self image

Published 10:14am Wednesday, February 9, 2011

This Valentine’s Day you can treat yourself extra specially thanks to Ohio University Southern.

The campus is gearing up for its annual Love Your Body presentation from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday as a way to promote positive self image and taking care of your mind, body and soul.

This is a worthy community service because it helps remind us that it is important to take care of ourselves physically, emotionally and spiritually.

Maintaining positive self-esteem is a challenge that faces many youth and young adults today.

However, battling to have a positive self image doesn’t end with adolescence. Many adults face the same challenges and this is a good way to see the myriad of resources that are available to address these areas.

The ultimate goal is to bring people together, provide a positive message about a variety of topics including eating and exercise and let them know that it is OK to be you.

Many Lawrence Countians are quick to put others first — and this is an important quality that makes our region so special — but it is also crucial that we do not forget to take care of ourselves.

So this Valentine’s Day try to give yourself some love. It will make your day and your life better.
