If you’re anything like me, it’s likely you don’t know one woman who isn’t at least mildly concerned about what her body looks like. Our society and culture have created a very strong and lasting message that the value placed on women is in their appearance: how thin, how beautiful, and often how white they can be. What a sad, small box we’ve been placed into and I, for one, get so fucking livid about how much time I spend worrying about my insecurities that are making other people rich. Especially when I could use that brain power to build my empire, amiright!?
So, where does one start? How do you start making peace with the body you reside in and move toward a loving relationship with yourself? Do you just chant a bunch of body positive affirmations in the mirror and hope for a magical shift? Not exactly. On this week’s show, I dial up Chardét Ryel, an author, wellness entrepreneur and Behaviour Change Specialist, empowering women globally with body confidence and well-being stripped of the rules. Hello! Let’s get some of that.
In this conversation, Chardét and I talk about how important it is to analyze your motivation behind your pull to work out, eat “healthy”, and make changes to your appearance. We also discuss the concept of “acceptance” and how so many of us want to jump straight to loving ourselves without doing the work necessary to simply remain neutral. She also walks us through her signature 7-step process to feeling good in your nakedness! You in? Let’s go.
This pod explores:
- Understanding what diet culture actually IS and how it disempowers women and women of color in particular
- Chardét’s 7-step process to feeling good naked (and why it’s about FEELING and not LOOKING good)
- The #1 question you must ask yourself if you want to get anywhere in your body love process
- Chardét’s favorite assignment for those wanting to accept and love their body (and why most people reeeeeally resist doing it)
