Abstract

In the current scenario that we live in, the bitter truth is that we define beauty by what is on the outside and
visible to the naked eye. The body image of a person plays such a huge role in one’s life that we constantly strive
to achieve the perfect body. This has led to various mental, behavioural and emotional issues. Unfortunately
people have even lowered their self-esteem. Body image and self-esteem have a great impact on the quality of life
and well-being of every individual. So the research aims to establish a relationship between body image and selfesteem
among adolescents and young adults.
The data was collected using Rosenberg’s Self-Esteem Scale, Body Shape Questionnaire and Body Mass Index
and it was analysed using correlation test. The results show that there exists correlation between body image and
self-esteem adolescents and young adults. The study helped occupational therapists plan an intervention without
stigma or judgment.
