Welcome to The Art of Eathink podcast! This is a podcast that questions the societal structures that systematically tell us that we are not good enough and that our bodies should look a particular way in order to be approved and valued. The purpose of Eathink is to shift focus from what healthy “looks” like, to what it should feel like. Season one consists of 12 episodes in which I explore each and every pillar of my coaching programme. By listening to these episodes the listener can start to do the ground work necessary in order to make fundamental changes in their lives.
In this episode I introduce myself and the work that I do, as well as explore two important topics that are crucial in order to free ourselves from negative thought patterns, body shame and destructive eating habits.
Perfectionism is something that many of us struggle with and in this episode I talk about how to move past perfectionism and work towards acceptance of who you are instead. I touch on the link between perfectionism and shame and how we tend to escape vulnerability by using perfectionism as a hiding place.
In this episode I explore the concept of self-love and self-worth and how they build on top of each other. I share why and how I began to reframe the meaning of love and the shift that took place after I started using it as a verb. We will also look into the difference between shame and guilt and how important it is to not identify with our behaviours.
In this episode I explore the power of awareness, what it truly means to have a positive body image and how to begin your journey towards developing one. I also touch on fat phobia and how this systematic oppression are one of the major reasons behind the increase in eating disorders today. Lastly, I give you some guidance and encouragement on how to let go of the “negative-body-image-comfort-zone” that you might find yourself in.
