Today’s episode focuses on a topic that our listeners have been requesting… body image (a “fun” one I know)!
The VAST majority of people are walking around uncomfortable in their own skin.
Most people that we encounter every single day have a negative view of their bodies, so if that’s you, you’re FAR from alone.
Stephanie and I can relate on both a personal level, and through the hundreds of clients we’ve worked with who struggle with their body image and self-esteem.
It’s important to make a distinction between self-esteem and body-image, because people often use those terms interchangeably. Though they can be intimately connected, they are actually quite different.
Body image is specific to the body while self-esteem is an evaluation of our worth as a whole, and is not just specifically related to our bodies. We can see the impact and the over emphasis many of us put on our physical bodies, and the way we feel about our physical bodies, has a large impact on how we really feel about ourselves.
