Manage episode 354138004 series 3442938
In today's episode, we dive into the topic of body image and its impact on our lives. I'll be sharing my personal struggles and the importance of seeking support when body image negatively impacts our life. Together, we'll explore the idea of body image as an emotion and how society's push for body positivity can put pressure on individuals to constantly love their bodies. Discover the concept of body neutrality as a way to find a happy middle ground and not let our emotions about our bodies affect our daily lives. Plus, learn about research on how our menstrual cycle affects our body image. Tune in for an open and honest conversation about body image and how we can all learn to appreciate our bodies for what they do for us.
