I want to quickly let you know about a great free resource if you or someone you love suffers from depression or anxiety. These challenges are often closely tied to body image, which is close to my heart. I will be attending this summit for personal and professional reasons. If it interests you the information is below:

The Mental Wellness Summit is an educational and empowering experience that explores better ways to approach and treat mental health from a root cause perspective–it’s designed with everyone in mind.

WHY ATTEND?

Today’s powerful treatment options, including specialized diet and improved nutrition, integrative medicine, naturopathy and functional medicine, somatic therapy, chiropractic care, acupuncture, yoga and meditation, to name a few, are available but rarely considered for treating mental health every day. Let’s go beyond just psychiatry and pills, and explore the best options for wellness in this evolving field.

Bikini Ready Bods…Is Yours?

Summer is in full swing and I’m wondering if you have ventured out in your bathing suit yet?

Are you bikini ready?

Of course you are! You have a body, you have a suit—put it one and there you have it!

Or not.

So many women feel self-conscious in their bodies and for good reason. But it’s not what you think. Feeling insecure isn’t due to any flaw in your beautiful self, no matter your size. It’s not your fault. Nothing is wrong with you.

You are bombarded constantly with computer enhanced images of “the perfect body” –WHICH DOES NOT EXIST. Even models will tell you they don’t look like their pictures.

I grew up thinking real women didn’t have any pores on their faces because all I saw was “airbrushed” faces of women. I figured when I grew up my skin would somehow transform into that poreless look if I used enough “pore shrinking” cream.

I grew up thinking my body was flawed because I had a “cute” little tummy even in my best shape. Little did I know that a flat stomach is not the norm on real women. I thought something was wrong with my body.

I grew up thinking my powerful soccer thighs were too big, because I didn’t have a thigh gap like 1 or 2 of my teammates. My thighs are designed to gap and theirs were.

Aside from the images we are assaulted with on tv, movies, social media, and print ads we live in a youth, beauty and thin OBSESSED culture. If you interact with the world this isn’t news to you.

These impossible ideals ae what our society indoctrinates us all with. Men included. The myths run deep into our consciousness. And to top it all off, the narcissism levels in our culture are going off the charts. That means people are becoming more and more self-involved, self-obsessed and self-focused. You can google it.

Now, let’s get back to your bikini bod. To get ready for the water you have to wade through layers and layers of this crap. It’s piled so high it invades your subconscious and guides your decisions and feelings without your awareness.

What can you do to clear your path and frolic freely this summer? How can you feel more comfortable in your skin, especially when you are showing more of it?

I’ve got some ideas and have found some things that work. I would love to hear what you’ve discovered that helps on your body love journey. Join our discussion in the free Summer Sizzle Series. Let’s get out those questions and begin to find some answers to end this madness that has taken over our society and our lives.

Ready for Your Summer Sizzle?

First of all, I was all set to hold our annual Body Love Summer Camp this August. It was on the calender and on the web site…But, I just wasn’t feeling it this year. So I decided to post-pone that event to next year and do something NEW instead!

ANNOUNCING the first SUMMER SIZZLE SERIES!

Your burning questions answered on all topics related to your body confidence and acceptance.

This will be a series of live Q&A calls with me and YOU.

We will get down to the nitty gritty and even have some time for a little “hot-seat” laser coaching for a few special participants.

The first call is July 28th, so sign up and submit your questions!

Join the conversation here.

Submit your questions in the comments, via email, FB, IG, Twitter, etc.
