Great listen

As a nurse I know it is so important to love yourself first so you can care for others. Love the intuition as well as how things can be looked at honestly and with a touch of humor on the side. Keep the positive chatter going!

Love the knowledge, perspective, and vulnerability that is shared

Thanks for working hard and sharing these important messages. I love that there is always research, real stories and something that we can work on. As a smaller than average person, I still struggle with my body image, self acceptance, and can relate to so many of the topics and stories. This podcast is helping me gain a more healthy perspective and more empathy for others and their journey. Thanks to this podcast, I’m currently working on viewing exercise as a celebration of what my body can do instead of punishment for the junk I’ve eaten. I’m also working on my relationship with food and being honest about the treats I sneak when no one is watching. It’s a work in progress!
