We are delighted to have spent the evening of 16 May with Calibrate By Stephanie and Mind HK to raise awareness for #mentalhealthawarenessand #bodypositivity. We learned about mental health and shared about sports and body image — both positive and negative — because it’s important to know both sides of the equation. And, we ate good food from Hunt & Gather in the company of people who care about the same topics that we care about!

In a recent article from The Guardian citing UK data, 「of 4,505 UK adults. It found that 57% of 18- to 24-year-olds surveyed admit to having felt anxious because of their body image, compared with 30% of 45- to 54-year-olds and 20% of over 55s.」

In HK, 「of 1,010 women aged 16-24. Of those surveyed, only 37 per cent were satisfied with their appearance. In particular, 41 per cent said they were unhappy with their facial features, including skin tone and quality. And, 40 per cent were unhappy with the shape of their nose.」 https://yp.scmp.com/…/more-70-cent-young-women-hong-kong-ar…

Not very optimistic data …
