Today’s special January 1st episode is going to help you build some resilience towards the overwhelming amount of diet culture BS that’s floating around this new year. Our guest today is Jayne Mattingly, the founder of Recovery Love and Care. Recovery Love and Care offers virtual supports for individuals on the path to eating disorder recovery. RLC’s mission is to help individuals find self-compassion, self-love and body appreciation through the practice of self-care and eating disorder awareness.
