Part of being human is experiencing the ups and downs of body image on a regular basis. It doesn't matter if you live in a thin, fit, fat, wrinkled, young, or old body - if you're human, you've likely looked at your reflection with dissatisfaction a time or two in your life.
How can you move through these bad body image moments or days with the least amount of distress as possible?
I recently sat down with Brianna Campos LPC to dig up all the nuances behind body image - what it is, what it isn't, and everything in between.
Brianna (Bri) Campos LPC is a licensed mental health counselor based in New Jersey. As a body image educator and founder of Body Image With Bri, she’s passionate about all things body image and practices through the lens of Health at Every Size® and Intuitive Eating. Utilizing a weight-inclusive approach, she combines her clinical skills and lived experience to teach others how to maneuver through their own unique body image journeys.
Bri share's how living in a larger body has impacted her body image story that ultimately lead her to create the incredibly inspiring Body Image with Bri.
Our discussion includes how Bri defines body image as an archeological dig rather than a journey. Why honoring body grief is essential to healing. And how to work through the difficulties of seeing your body in photos and reflections.
Grab your journal, a favorite beverage, and let's dig into this rich conversation about Body Image.
After you've listened to the show, Bri and I would love to hear from you. What's one way you can take care of yourself during bad body image days? Leave your comments here.
