theholisticnutritionistSo...I'm going to be completely honest and say I went into listening to this podcast with @anastasia_boulais and @stupideasypaleo with my shackles up (which is the EXACT opposite of how one should go into anything. We should always go in with an open mind).... the topic they are discussing is the whole "self love" movement and why it might be a misguided venture.
For those of you who know me, I'm very pro "self love", so I was on the defence from the start. And while I think we need to distinguish between self love as narcissism and self-obsession vs self love as rebuilding self respect and self appreciation, these two ladies raise some VERY important points that we are indeed missing in the self love movement (well any health "movement" in general, really).
For true happiness (and health), we need CONNECTION! With others. In real life. Hugging and shit (which, for those of you who know me, know I'm a hugger, so.... @stupideasypaleo I won't feel awkward if you lean in for a hug).
Anyways. Head over to iTunes and listen to the podcast (search "Harder to kill radio" and the topic "I love me"). You will learn A LOT (cos @anastasia_boulais is super smart....you can hear her speak at this years @ahsnz event in Queenstown, if you're lucky. Details coming soon).
It's a long listen, but very worthwhile. Looking forward to hearing your thoughts. Xx Kate
