Students are using sticky notes to promote positive body image. What would yours say?by Circa News

A national effort is underway to fight negative body image. As part of "Operation Beautiful," people are writing words of encouragement on sticky notes and leaving them on bathroom mirrors on campus.  Joanne Theobald, a counselor at Casper College in Wyoming, is the brains behind Operation Beautiful. She also created "Love Your Body ... Treat it Well" week, featuring student exhibits on the history of body image. These projects aim to help students dealing with eating disorders, social anxiety and other problems deal with negativity and stereotypes in society.

"The project is an effort to fight the results of research that show when people look in the mirror, they often immediately notice their flaws."
