Episode 14: Positive Body Image with Holly Miller

Positive body image and self-talk doesn’t start by looking in the mirror or at the scale – it starts in the mind. 

Self-talk is an intrinsic part of the human experience. We are hardwired for internal dialog with ourselves, and this is not always problematic. 

The issues start when self-talk starts to focus on shortcomings or problems in one area or one situation, it becomes very easy to only see problems in many other areas or situations.  We need to focus on the positive, speak to ourselves with love, kindness and show confidence. 

“The view you adopt for yourself profoundly affects the way you lead your life.” – Dr. Carol Dweck 

In today’s chat, I sat down with Holly Byrd Miller to discuss her own self-acceptance journey, the importance of positive self-talk and body image for ourselves and our children, and the influence Holly’s mom had upon her life and her outlook. Holly also shares some self-care and beauty tips!
