The other weekend I attended a professional training for The Body Positive. This training was truly inspiring.
Let me give you a little background on The Body Positive and what these amazing women have created. Connie Sobczak and Elizabeth Scott founded The Body Positive 10 years ago. The Body Positive’s mission is to teach people how to overcome conflicts with their bodies to lead happier more productive lives. It’s about cultivating a loving relationship with yourself both mentally and physically.
In order to start caring for ourselves, we can follow The Be Body Positive Model. The model is made up of five core Competencies:
1.) Reclaim health
I will be posting more blogs about each specific competency in more detail.
If you want to learn more about The Body Positive, you can check out the web page here. You will also be able to find Embody: Learning to Love Your Unique Body (and quiet that critical voice!), which is written by Connie.
