This week on social media I asked the question "do you feel comfortable in your body?"
I wasn't crazy surprised by the answer--spoiler alert: most people sadly DO NOT feel comfortable in their bodies.
In fact, according to a study found on nationaleatingdisorders.org, 70% of women are unhappy with their bodies, while 43% of men are dissatisfied with their bodies.
Why is this? Most of it has to do with weight and body size. We feel a LOT of pressure to be a certain size in order to feel beautiful. Our society values looks over all, and that can be a really difficult reality to cope with.
This episode is all about exploring the reasons why we feel so uncomfortable in our bodies, and at the end of the episode I'll give you a few actionable tips to help you start feeling more comfortable in your body right now! The good news? You don't have to lose weight in order to feel confident in your body. In fact, the acceptance begins before the weight loss. That's the secret to making long lasting changes in your habits, and it's something that no one is telling you.
