    S3Ep5: Reflecting on Our Relationships with Food

    In this episode, Kierra and Nic tackle the difficult and sensitive subject of our relationships with food. Connections are made to attachment styles to help us understand how different people form different relationships with food but also how they are impacted socially and culturally. Kierra and Nic share some of their personal experiences with food and how each of their relationships with food were impacted by their childhood environments. They discuss diet culture, clothing, labeling foods, listening to body cues regarding hunger, and issues surrounding body image. If you struggle with your relationship with food, stick around until the end of the episode where they reflect on how to reset yourself to build a healthier relationship.

    S3Ep3: Exploring the Relationship with the Self

    The relationship with the self is the hardest one for all of us to confront and talk about. Join us as we explore what makes our longest and the most important relationship the hardest one for us to maintain. Kierra and Nic make connections back to previous episodes to touch on the impacts of attachment styles and family dynamics on our relationship with ourselves. Obstacles to a positive relationship with ourselves are guilt and shame. Kierra and Nic explore ways to improve this relationship by discussing self-empathy and self-compassion as well as focus on how to build self-love by engaging in meaningful and intentional self-care.
