Score from 0-14: 

You love your body and you do not give much importance to defects that could be there. You like yourself as you are and you do not judge others. Live a beautiful experience that leads you to be free to feel emotions and positive sensations. There may be moments of ups and downs, but you live with full awareness and for which you then try to find your inner and outer balance. In this way, you can build self-esteem, so you often feel comfortable with yourself and others. 

Score from 15-24: 

The relationship you have with your body is not the best. Sometimes, you are strict with yourself and when you look at yourself you always try to find all the defects, without appreciating the actual beauty of your body. You need to listen more to your body and let it express its needs. Try to be more tolerant and appreciate yourself more, perfection does not exist.
