Breathe in positivity, exhale negativity.  Ever caught yourself looking in the mirror and just feeling, well, not great about what you see? We all have those moments, and they can lead to us being super hard on ourselves. When we see a distorted image of ourselves, especially about our body and how we look, we tend to become self-critical and resort to negative self-talk.  Today, we are going to focus on breaking out of that kind of mindset and focusing on giving ourselves so much love. Let's talk about how to get out of this distorted mindset and focus more on self-appreciation. We start by discovering three things we truly love about ourselves and how to be in a space where societal expectations and opinions no longer hold sway over your authenticity. There is a profound impact in changing the way we talk to ourselves. Positive self-talk isn't just about words; it's about nurturing inner dialogue that ignites joy and self-compassion.  But it doesn't end with self-love. Compliments are more than words; they're a gift of affirmation that uplifts not just the recipient, but also the giver. Let's celebrate the magic of being unapologetically ourselves and embrace the beauty we hold within us.   What We Discuss: 00:00 Surprise energy work with a stranger 02:20 The 3 things you love about yourself 07:50 It’s so freeing to not just care 10:57 Change how you talk to yourself 12:59 Appreciate your body 15:09 Compliment other people 18:04 Negative relationship with the concept of being skinny 18:42 Take social media breaks 20:02 The truth about comparison 24:40 The clothes for when I… 26:16 You are the soul and not the body Follow Radhi: See for privacy information.

When was the last time you cried? For some, crying can be seen as a sign of weakness or vulnerability. Society often teaches us that showing our feelings, especially by crying, should be avoided or suppressed, especially in certain situations or if we want to appear strong. But it's crucial to understand that crying is a natural and healthy way to release bottled-up emotions and stress. It's a physical response that helps us deal with different situations and emotions. Trying to hold back tears can negatively affect our mental and emotional well-being, possibly making us more stressed, anxious, or even physically unwell. Today, let's talk about the positive effects of crying and releasing our emotions. Crying is not a sign of weakness, but rather an essential aspect of being human. It provides an avenue for emotional release, stress relief, enhanced mood, mental clarity, and deeper connections with others. So, the next time you feel like shedding a tear, don't hold back. It's perfectly okay and can be quite beneficial for your overall well-being.
