Episode 64. Balancing Activism and Self-Care
Today I’m back with a solo episode to discuss all things activism and self-care.
In this podcast I discuss:
- How body obsession detracts from your passions and pursuits
- Historical women who have made lasting impact and the rhetoric around their legacy that helps to challenge self-worth and body image ideals
- How removing yourself from diet culture can be the greatest rebellious act
- Finding your why and using that to drive positive change within yourself and the world
- Balancing your activism with self-care practices
I’m keeping this episode short and sweet this week and suggest that you take the extra time to listen to some other podcasts that include BIPOC voices as I work towards bringing a more diverse guest list to this show:
- Check out Body Trauma Pod hosted by Nia Patterson @thefriendineverwanted
- Listen to Chrissy King on F*ck it Diet Podcast where she talks about Shrinking vs Strength, and her Anti-Racism crash course for Fitness and Wellness Professionals. You can follow her on Instagram @iamchrissyking
- Listen to BIPOC voices on the Body Kindness Podcast. One of my favourite episodes is episode 75 with Sonya Renee Taylor, author of Your Body is Not an Apology.
- This List Of Books, Films And Podcasts about racism from NPR (it’s a start, not a panacea)
- White Privilege In The Wellness Industry Ft. Dana Samuel on the Diet Starts Tomorrow Podcast
