Every woman (and man) should listen and read these

bodyimage

Poor body image is something I have worked on personally as well as professionally.  I don’t know a single woman who likes their body fully or who can go through an entire day without focusing on some imperfection.  It’s insidious.  And as these two sources state, it takes a LOT of energy to be that hyper-vigilant.  Energy that could be directed toward much more amazing things!

So, please watch the TEDx talk by Caroline Heldman called The Sexy Lie, and then go and read the blog post by Angel Kalafatis (and when she starts talking about yoga, you can also put in CBT or Mindfulness as skills to learn to do similar things).

Let’s hope that more and more of us can move beyond our own self-subjugation.
