Body image during the coronavirus

In an unprecedented time for our generation, everyone seems to be struggling to make sense of the situation, and come out of it unscathed. While there are some things that are more important than what the scale says or how we may or may not fit into our jeans, the issue of body image seems too prevalent to ignore. I asked my friends on Instagram if they saw a difference in their eating habits and if they felt they were struggling with their body image and the social isolation. An alarming amount of people told me they were so stressed out and bored, that that led them to binge eating sessions and guilt for not being able to go to the gym to burn off the calories.
