Being in Nature (TM) or being in nature? I can assure you that in one you can have a relaxing thought about your self image. While in the latter you don’t give a crap because you’re trying to avoid briars and trees are molesting every orifice you have. Every. Orifice.

Not seeing the kardipshits for a while probably helps. That family has done more to harm female body image than anything I can think of.

I mean, if you are out in nature and being chased by a cheeta you wouldn’t have this problem. /j On a serious note, staying off of social media when you are obsessed with it is obviously better for your mental health.
