I recently started listening to the podcast series Talking Body and instantly felt like I was chatting with my girlfriends about the issues women face on the daily.
From the first episode, I shared it with friends and clients because this topic is something all women have faced but often don’t talk about. Unfortunately, you’re not alone in the negative thoughts you may have about your body but why? Why are we faced with societal norms that tell us what size is “healthy”?
This 12-week podcast series is hosted by Amy Porterfield, a successful entrepreneur who struggled her whole life with a nagging suspicion that she wasn’t living up to the invisible standard of how she should look. Her mission with this series is to discover exactly where that little voice inside her head came from and takes us on the journey to eliminate body standards with some new friends and fresh perspectives.
Talking Body will answer questions like…
Can I love my body and still want to change things about it?
How does my experience as a white woman differ from those experienced by women of colour?
Does being healthy equal being desirable, or are we just told that it does?
Do I own my self-image, or is it just another product I post online?
