Why is it so hard to accept ourselves? Why do we struggle so hard to treat ourselves with the love and compassion that we would treat a dear friend? Finding out the challenges and figuring out how to change that is important for our wellbeing in so many ways. That’s why episode 13 of The Positively Living Podcast with Jane Tornatore is about relieving stress through self-acceptance! 

In this episode of The Positively Living Podcast, Jane Tornatore and I are sharing the importance of addressing the strange tendencies that keep us stuck and stressed and actionable steps you can take right now to start practicing gratitude and experiencing self- acceptance today. We cover the following topics:

  • There is power in choosing…choosing how we perceive our feelings
  • How we embrace habits like gratitude to create new neural pathways in our brain
  • The way we speak to ourselves has more impact than we realize…words truly matter
  • Jane’s dedicated list of words she wants to ban from our language

I think we can all agree that kindness matters. And I firmly believe we need to start with being kind to ourselves first. The benefits are far-reaching, and with the right initial effort, self-acceptance can become an automatic part of your life that not only serves you, but others too.

Thank you for listening! Be sure to tune in to all the episodes to receive tons of practical tips to create space for what really matters in your life
