We live in a culture that has normalized becoming preoccupied with the size and shape of bodies. This has led us to the point that some people only experience their lives through the lens of weight and size. Be honest: how much time do you spend thinking about your body?

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!
