Going Deep: Body Image and How We View Ourselves

We’re here to talk to you today about how we look at ourselves. This topic came up as I was getting ready one day and felt totally different about myself. It’s strange — because, on other days, I wake up and everything looks OK. Truly, you can’t look much different 24 hours later, but that still doesn’t change how you can feel when you look at yourself in the mirror. You would think how you look at yourself is somehow objective to who you are as a person — but really, it’s almost all about how you see yourself.

In this episode, Sophie and I tackle some important topics in relation to just that — experiences we’ve had growing up and dealing with body image, the process of making peace with your appearance, positive affirmation, and staying away from negative self-talk, gratitude and embodying what you’re grateful for, self-care, and how you can improve your life by incorporating the same changes we made, into your life.
