Episode 002- What our bodies can DO Cover Pic

The conversation in this episode is about body image. It’s a huge topic, so we decided to start by focusing on what our bodies can do more than what they look like. The three talking points include: 

  1. What is body checking and why it’s harmful
    • Body checking is monitoring yourself from an outsider’s perspective even if no one else is looking
    • Body checking hurts us because we aren’t fully present in anything that we’re doing. 
  1. How to reduce body checking 
    • Focusing on experiencing life in our bodies rather that how our bodies look while we’re doing things
    • Ideas on how to reduce body checking
  1. Why the types of compliments we give matter
    • Compliments on bodies bring attention to our bodies
    • Ideas for non-appearance based compliments
