My rebel runners, you know I’m a huge proponent of body positivity and I do a lot of work to help women achieve happiness in the bodies they have. This is a topic that transcends age, and I’ve had so many questions from you asking how you can help your daughters overcome any body image issues they may have.
I am so excited to share that my guest on the podcast this week is Geri Gibbons – a kickass life coach and an expert on body image, especially with teenage and preteen girls. Geri has a teenage daughter herself, and she’s on the show to share some firsthand experience.
We discussed everything from the negative (and positive) effects social media can have on our kids today, to how managing your own mindset can, in turn, aid your children’s perspective of themselves. Tune in to hear some really helpful discussions on body image, and learn how you can help your kids with their mindsets too!
If you loved what Geri had to say and you want to attend a private class with her, make sure you join Run Your Best Life. The class will be held on June 24th!
