Ep 160: The power and perils of self-observation SelfKind with Erica Webb

    • Health & Fitness

Welcome to episode 160 of SelfKind!
Today I'm answering a question that came through on Instagram from a listener (that sounds so 90s talkback radio and I love it). The question was this:

How do you feel about seeing yourself/your body on screen? Has this changed over time? Do you feel present when you look at yourself?

In answering this question, I've put together some tips for you for when you notice yourself diving into self-judgement. Along with that, in this episode you'll hear:

> why a family member telling me I looked pregnant in some of my website pictures was a turning point in how I looked at myself
> why self-kindness and compassion isn't our default
> how I create distance with and compassion for my negative self-judgements
> the difference between creating for others versus creating for self.

Tune in and then come share your thoughts with me. You'll find me on Instagram or visit my website.

I also remind you about about my upcoming course - Low Back Love - an 8 week program that starts with the premise of self-kindness as the baseline. You can find out more about the program and join here. Registrations close 10th July 2022 (if this date has passed, add yourself to the waitlist for the next round!).
