In this month's solo episode, Holly is talking about how healthism is yet another way our culture has found to 'other,' oppress and stigmatize fatness. We talk about why health isn't something you morally need to work towards, and how this pursuit is harming more people than it is doing good. 

At the end of the day I want you to start questioning your own reasons for pursuing health and wellness, and ask yourself whether or not it's something you really want to spend your time and energy on. And if it IS, get clear about why. I also want you to start to be way more conscious about the "health" and weight messages you're putting out into the universe, so that we can stop this perpetuation of unrealistic beauty, health and body standards.

Stasia Savasuk is a style coach, who uses the concept of congruency (aka aligning with your values!) with her clients to help them match their outsides to their insides and help them find their voice. 

Stasia truly advocates for both body acceptance & empowerment through all of her work with clients, and teaches them how to tap into their personal values in order to figure out what style elements are going to make them feel seen in the bodies they are  in NOW, not the bodies they think they should have.

In this week on the podcast I'm talking with Chelsea Coreen about her newest project, Mercury Mermaid, which is an online platform for people to tap into both their creativity as well as their spirituality in order to improve mental health.

Chelsea is an educator, a poet, a researcher, a tarot reader a feminist and so much more. We dive into how Mercury Mermaid came to fruition, how it has helped her heal from sexual trauma, body image issues, and anxiety. Mercury Mermaid is also launching a new podcast called Ask a Mermaid, launching this coming September!

This quick solo style mini episode is a bridge between interviews. Just checking in to share a personal story and how it transcends back into the work I'm constantly talking about when it comes to Intuitive Eating, body positivity, anti-dieting, and recovering from disordered eating. 

Later this week on the podcast we have another kick-butt interview with a close friend of mine. Hint: It's gonna get a little woo-woo!
