I recently finished reading the book Embody: Learning to Love Your Unique Body (and Quiet that Critical Inner Voice!). The book is by Connie Sobczak, co-founder of the non-profit organization The Body Positive.
Embody is a beautiful book, woven with heart-wrenching stories and inspiring quotes, that teaches the five competencies of the Be Body Positive Model. The competencies are:
- Reclaim Health
- Practice Intuitive Self-Care
- Cultivate Self-Love
- Declare Your Own Authentic Beauty
- Build Community
I loved this book. In my experience, the ability to appreciate your body is often a rate-limiting step to rejecting the diet mentality and committing to a Health at Every Size® approach. I highly recommend this book to anyone with a body!
