Your body is where you live. It is the thing through which you experience this life and it's constantly conspiring to keep you here on this planet. Your lungs breathe, your heart beats, your neurons are firing, your digestive tract is working... all with no conscious effort on your part! Personally I think that's pretty damn rad!!

Do you take responsibility for your body image? For the negative voices in your head? For the things you say to yourself when nobody else is around? For the way you judge yourself? You may be shouting 'YES!!!' from the rooftops! Or you might be in the 'umm... NO! It's not my fault!' category. Lately in my life, the subject of taking responsibility has been coming up A LOT. Responsibility for your actions, for your words, for your finances, for your relationships, and for y
Moving your body. Exercising. Training. There are lots of ways we can describe this seemingly simple thing, yet it can be incredibly complicated and difficult for some of us.

Daily affirmations can be a powerful tool in growing and lovingly transforming your body image. So what is an affirmation you may ask? It is a positive sentence that you repeat to yourself on a daily basis. It is something you aspire to achieve or grow into, yet said as if you're already there.

Alright ladies and gents, this is a BIG topic! Like seriously, this is huge. There are books, documentaries, tv series, and many people's careers based solely on this one thing. It is not something that can be learned in one day or even properly discussed in this medium, but it is still well worth talking about. Why? Because is affects ALL of us!
