Relationship to the Body

Season 03, Episode 30

Our bodies are always speaking to us, but often we’re not able to understand or listen to what they’re trying to communicate.

In this episode, hosts Jennifer and Elisabeth unpack the complexities of our relationship to the body, including how our perceptions, emotions and beliefs about our bodies significantly impact our overall well-being. They dive deep into the impact the interoceptive system has on the nervous system, emotions and behaviors, especially in relation to disordered eating and body dysmorphia.

Jennifer and Elisabeth explore how past traumas shape our body image and inhibit our ability to express emotions safely through the body, sharing their own journeys from the cycle of maladaptive behaviors to loving acceptance.

Tune in to hear their insights into having a healthier, more compassionate relationship with your body!
