May is National Teen Self-Esteem Month and a great way to inspire confidence in teens. Self-esteem is essential for not only how we see ourselves, but also how we perceive our competencies and skills. People with high self-esteem are usually happier and more confident, while, on the contrary, low self-esteem can result in feelings of depression and can lead to isolation and eating problems and seriously affect an individual’s mental health.
Self-confidence is an especially problematic area during teenage. Teens are particularly sensitive about their own sense of self-image and how others perceive them. Almost half of the high school girls admit that they’re not satisfied and the way they look and are trying to lose weight. Over 70% would avoid normal daily activities and even skip school if they’re not feeling “pretty”.
Teenage self-esteem is an especially delicate area of the personality and such, requires special attention. National Teen Self-Esteem Month is promoted by a number of organizations, amongst which is Invisalign Teen. Teen self-confidence is mainly built around their looks and their perceptions of what’s attractive. Given the choice between healthy and attractive, most teens would most certainly choose the latter but with Invisalign Teen, it’s no longer necessary to make this choice. To support and promote the teen’s choice and confidence, Invisalign developed an innovative product that allows teenagers to enjoy themselves and look their best, without sacrificing health or comfort.
