130: Why do we ALWAYS judge ourselves?

This podcast episode is brought to your by MerryBody. The 4 week Yoga and Pilates home fitness program.

If you could hear your thoughts on a recording what they be saying? Would they be thoughts of kindness, compassion and love? Or thoughts of anger, hate and dislike? We’ve worked hard at changing our self-hating thoughts. And woah, did it take practise to turn them into self-love. And guess what though? The hate and judgement still creep in.

Seriously, why do we always judge ourselves? 

This episode has so much goodness. Ahhh!

Stuff we talked about…

  • how we watched our MerryBody workout videos and the first reaction and thoughts were HORRIBLE! 
  • how weird it is when you think a photo/video of yourself is horrible and then in a week you like it, then a year later it’s like dayum you were a babe!
  • what we do to bring more self-love into our days.
  • the importance of being present. The magic of presence!
  • how the idea of ‘perfection’ does not exist.

“The beauty myth- an obsession with physical perfection that traps a modern woman in an endless cycle of hopelessness, self-consciousness, and self-hatred as she tries to fulfil society’s impossible definition of flawless beauty. I choose to take care of myself because I want to, not to prove anything to anyone. Wind in her sails.” Selena Gomez.
