Strong Body Strong Mind and The Journey Of Self Acceptance with Steph Gaudreau
Play • 51 min

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. 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 mind.
