Episode Overview

Whether you’re a Balance365 Veteran or new to our little corner of the internet (hi, welcome!) you’ve most likely heard us preach the importance of self-compassion. This is where some people get tripped up, feeling like self-compassion will lead them to abandon their goals and becoming complacent in their lives.

Spoiler alert… If you are practicing self-compassion, your goals will become more attainable to you than they ever have before. If you have abandoned your goals or feel yourself settling for less than you deserve, you are leaning into something else.

Buckle up as Jen and Annie journey down the windy road of self-compassion while unpacking the commonly held belief that compassion can’t exist without complacency.

Outlook shifted 

Since listening to this podcast (and being part of the Facebook group(s) of B365), my whole outlook on myself, my body, my wellness, my worth has changed for the better. I thank these ladies for showing me another way to be in this world. I no longer obsess over my weight or food. I very much look forward to each podcast released!


My Morning Coffee Date 

Especially in 2020, having a little positivity is so important. Every time I listen to this podcast, not only do I have a smile on my face, I discover something about myself. And I consider myself to have a whole hell of a lot of self-awareness to begin with! It's almost cliche to say this now but it truly feels like you're having coffee with girlfriends!
