The Meteorological office has forecasted a stormy week ahead, with rain showers, high force winds and some lightning and thunder being expected. 

The expected storm has also led to the postponement and reshuffling of events around the island, with even EuroPride organisers moving the opening ceremony and after party on Thursday will be moved to Ta’ Qali MFCC.

Malta The Country With Highest Body Confidence In The World

In a recently conducted global survey quizzing over 56,000 people from 65 nations worldwide, it was found that people in Malta are the most confident in their bodies. 

The study, conducted by researchers from Anglia Ruskin University, found that Malta, followed by Taiwan, Bangladesh and Kazakhstan, was most happy in terms of the population’s body image. 

This was contrasted by Australia, who topped the list in terms of being not confident about their body image, followed by India, the UK and Ireland. 

Professor Viren Swami, lead author of the study, said the study found how people who live in countries culturally different to the United States appear to have broadly greater body appreciation. 

‘People who live in urban areas may feel stronger pressure to conform to body ideals promoted by Western society’, he exclaimed. He also noted how people who were single exclaimed higher body positivity more broadly.
