Body Positivity and Finding Self-Love In a World of Non-Acceptance

Body Positivity and Finding Self-Love In a World of Non-Acceptance

Yoga Girl: Conversations From The Heart - August 18, 2017 - 1:03:46

How can we find self-love in a society that constantly pushes us toward non-acceptance? In this episode, Rachel talks about body positivity and loving her postpartum body while struggling with that little voice in the back of her mind telling her she isn't good enough. She shares a recent and fairly amusing story of how the insecurity sent her spiraling into some truly irrational behavior and gives tips on how to stop the vicious cycle of self-judgement. By directing attention away from the stressful chatter of the mind we can move toward feeling grounded in the body - but it's not easy! She also talks about bringing energy toward what we want to create versus what we don't need and learning to appreciate the quiet moments - all while struggling with sleep deprivation.
