Body Compassion Video Series
If you want to transform bad eating habits and body image at once, this Body Compassion video series is for you. Sounds good, but you undoubtedly have questions, like what’s this thing called body compassion and how does cultivating it transform food and body issues?
Without a doubt, body compassion, or treating your body with self-compassion, is a potent antidote to food and body image issues. That’s what research scientists are discovering, that’s what my clients are finding, and that’s what you’ll surely find after watching this five-part series.
Turns out, when you have a little body compassion, it’s a whole lot easier to do what you’ve been trying so hard to do – to eat better, feel better and look better. In fact, when you treat your body like a friend or a loved one, there’s no need to deprive yourself at the dinner table or kill yourself at the gym.
You see, when you treat your body with compassion, you are actively appreciating this body of yours. And with active appreciation comes the intrinsic motivation to eat when you’re hungry and stop when you’re full, rest when you’re tired and move when you feel energized. What’s more, with this appreciative attitude, it makes more sense to buy comfortable jeans instead of squeezing yourself into that girdle-tight pair that you insist on wearing until you lose the weight you gained at least a holiday season ago.
Need more reason to have a little more body compassion? Watch the first video and learn four good reasons why changing how you feel about your body actually makes it easier to change your body for good. Then keep the transformation going by watching the rest of the videos in order. After the first two videos, which are intended to be watched just once, watch each of the remaining videos every day for a week. So you’ll watch one video every day for one week, then the next video every day for the next week and so on.
