We have been working together as a dynamic duo for over 15 years, supporting people in their journey to improve their relationship with their body and end their Body Battle.
The positive differences we noticed from bringing mindfulness, self-compassion, and gratitude into our own lives inspired us to bring these practices into our professional work. It didn’t take long for us to see the impact these principles had in supporting people to shift their thinking about themselves and their bodies and make important strides in healing their relationship with their bodies. By shifting from criticism of their body to gratitude towards it, and beginning to show kindness and care to their body, they were able to come to a place of peaceful acceptance rather than hatred and war. We realized the power this transformation could have for anyone struggling with a Body Battle, not just our clients. Our friends, family members, neighbours, colleagues...the struggle for people to accept and honour their bodies is epidemic!
We became excited about the idea of a journal that would help to guide people through the process of making this powerful change in their lives.
Enter The Body Compassion Journal.
We designed the journal to include daily prompts for reflection and Weekly Embraces. These are activities that encourage you to explore and heal your relationship with your body, food, and many other important aspects of your life.
We are forever grateful to all the people we have encountered over the years who have allowed us to join them on their journey. They have inspired this journal, and we couldn’t have created it without them.
Enjoy the journey!
