Strong Body Strong Mind and The Journey Of Self Acceptance with Steph Gaudreau
Episode #11 | September 02, 2021
A strong body creates a strong mind. The mental discipline and meditative qualities in physical movement can be life-changing and can heal on a deeper level too. Not only for wellbeing but for cultivating self-acceptance. In this episode, we discuss how dedicated exercise and mindset work can transform your relationship with yourself.
About this episode:
Steph shares her expertise on challenging limiting beliefs and stories about body image and body type. We tackle the ‘never enough’ mindset trap with regard to exercise and body image, where we get stuck believing that we are never good enough until we reach the level of perfection in our minds. Steph offers a more holistic approach to fuel your body and mind in a way that is more compassionate and in alignment with who you really are. We speak openly about our own journeys of self-acceptance and learning to love our body types and how shifting your Mindset is key to changing your relationship with your body.
