The majority of young people in the U.K. feel pressure to get in shape, and it’s making them anxious.

Jul 28 2021

The majority of young people in the U.K. feel pressure to get in shape, and it’s making them anxious. According to a OnePoll survey, 78% of adults under 25-years-old feel pressure to be “summer body ready,” compared to 41% of adults overall. Over a quarter of those under 25 also say they feel anxious about how their bodies are “supposed” to look. Pressure around fitness is nothing new, but body image has been tested in new ways in the last year with quarantines, loss of routines, and isolation leading to weight gain and time on video calls amplifying insecurities. YPulse found that the number of young people in the U.S. who report having an unhealthy diet increased significantly between 2019 and 2021, and calls to U.K. eating disorder charity Beat were reportedly up 149% in May this year compared to before the pandemic.
