Welcome! This Omeka site accompanies my podcast called "Mind Over Mirror", which focuses on social media and its impact on body image, as social comparison through media impacts this.

My podcast will aim to expose the negative downsides of social media, and how social media users are being affected by its unrealistic views on body image, daily. I hope to expose the tricks and secrets that social media influencers utilize in efforts to contribute to the unfeasible expectations of one's body image. Social comparison is the root of the problem within social media body images, as these parallels may cause emotions of inadequacy, which in turn may cause harmful "resolutions". Some of the most common “resolutions” consist of intermediate fasting, excessive exercising, obsessive body weighing, and the unfortunate result of body dysmorphia. My podcast will shed light on the social media and body image dilemma.
