Hi friends! I’m so excited to be partnering with Dr. Stephen Cabral on some upcoming podcast episodes, including this one. I’m currently enrolled in his Integrative Health Practitioner course (Levels 1 and 2) and have learned SO much already. If you’re considering expanding your knowledge in health and wellness or are considering making a career change, check it out here.
I’ve got a new podcast episode up today and am sharing an interview with Bebekah Buege, who is a women’s confidence coach. A heads up about this episode: we talk a lot about body image and past events in this post, so I wanted to include this note here if you think this topic would be triggering for you in any way. It’s meant to be empowering, but I can absolutely see how this can be a delicate topic, particularly for my friends who have experience with body dysmorphia and/or eating disorders. Please use your discretion and know that I’m holding you in my heart as you heal.
098: Boosting inner worth and body confidence with Rebekah Buege
Here’s a little bit about what we talk about:
- What causes body image issues in high performing women
- Feeling good in your skin wearing anything (or nothing at all)
- Disarming body image triggers from childhood
- Giving compliments without hurting someone’s body image
- How body image is a philosophical issue, not a psychological issue
Here’s a bit of background on Rebekah:
Rebekah Buege challenges cultural expectations of women through a philosophical lens of what we individually (and culturally) believe makes a woman good. She teaches women tangible ways to value their body based on what it does and develop a truly loving relationship between body and self. Because believe it or not, you are not your body. This sparked her drive to create Confidently She, a podcast and educational platform centered on developing, experimenting, and enjoying femininity in all its forms. Her work, featured in Darling Magazine and Marigold, touches upon the importance of patience when it comes to our relationships with our bodies, the concept of social currency, and a deep dive into creating a rock-solid sense of self-worth.
Rebekah’s book, Social Currency, is set to publish in summer 2022 with over 500 pre-order copies already sold. Social Currency examines how a culture obsessed with perfection uses social currencies such as beauty, power, and status as the ultimate measure of a woman’s worth, before showing readers there is another way.
