Are You Unhappy With Your Body?
Too many women struggle with poor body image. We nitpick our bodies, obsess over “flaws” and speak unkindly to ourselves (and/or others) propagating a quest for perfection that is unattainable. These habits have the ability to cause body dysmorphic disorder if left unchecked. Trainer and body positivity advocate Rebecca Patterson has first-hand experience with both an unhealthy view of her body and reversing the thought patterns that keep you stuck. She joins me to discuss signs that you have poor body image, how to tell if you’re leaning toward body dysmorphia and three steps you can take to improve how you see (and feel about) yourself.
We also discuss the role of social media and faith in this struggle. I know there’s something in this episode you or someone you love needs to hear.
