Hey there, lovely radicals! Podcast ahead.
Today on the “Life. Unrestricted.” podcast, your ears are in for a re-treat.
Because it’s THAT time of year again.
Christmas and New Year’s are at the door and with them a lot of tension.
And a lot of misguided “resolutions”.
So I think we’re all in need of some reminders as to why we DON’T have to listen to all the diet-y New Year’s Resolutions and false promises. Some soul-saving words to stay true to our own body’s needs and to keep trusting it.
So in todays’ episode I want to remind us of that by replaying something I said a while ago.
See, all around us, people are in a buying frenzy, we are all being bombarded by “special offers” and “limited editions” and “gift ideas”.
And I can’t help thinking of this excellent quote (credited to 15 different people, so I wonder if I should make it mine…?—Just kidding!) that says:
“We are persuaded to buy things we don’t need, with money we don’t have, to impress people we don’t care about.”
And as if THAT wasn’t enough to give me a million ideas for this podcast, we are ALSO being bombarded by the same old, sucked dry, tried-and-failed weight-loss New Year’s resolutions.
I can’t even with this nonsense anymore!
It makes me want to poke my eyeballs with a pencil and make monkey noises. This has got to change. So I’m going to talk about it.
This episode is packed full of what I know about present-day marketing and how this ties into our world’s collective, terrible state of body image. In my opinion, this knowledge is crucial to become more critical as a consumer and better equipped to see behind façades.
This episode also contains a truckload of NEW “New Year’s Resolutions” to keep you strong on this path towards liberating your wonderful self, and not to fall for the tired old bunch of weight-lossy ones.
And lastly, this episode is full of love. Full of gratitude for you showing up, full of respect for your continuous growth, full of awe for our collective support, our community, our sister- and brotherhood, for lack of a less wooo-wooo word.
All of what I say today, is based on my interest to see us blossom.
One promise: After listening to this, you will be perfectly equipped to step into the New Year with an awake mind, a well-oiled internal bullshit-detector, and a protective shield against the onslaught of body negative messages around you.
One warning: Listening to this may cause you to question some beliefs you might have subconsciously been holding on to, and that might feel uncomfortable.
One secret: That’s a sign of growth! Growth happens out of your comfort zone.
Thank you a million times for being on this journey with me….
You are incredible people, radicals. I love you.
Happy holidays, merry everything!
