Loving Your Body While Striving for Change

January 31 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Location: Your Computer

Each day we can find inspiration calling us both to love and accept our body as it is and also to strive to make changes to be our best self. How can we embrace both of these empowering messages – without making ourselves crazy?

In this noontime webinar, you will learn how to call on your drive and discipline for positive change while also being compassionate and accepting of how things are in the present moment. We will explore how to manage external pressures about body size, aging, and gender expression and shift critical thought patterns into inspirational ones. By using simple mindfulness tools, you will discover how to access your healthy instincts about effort, rest, and what is truly nurturing, identify your positive motivations for change and your internal change blockers, and build daily practices for patience and kindness with your progress, even when the change you seek is not happening the way you want.

This presentation is great for people who are setting new fitness challenges, working on weight loss or weight gain, recovering from an injury or illness, adjusting to new physical limitations, transitioning gender, or facing aging.

Instructor: Melissa Fritchle, LMFT, is a writer, workshop leader, certified mindfulness meditation teacher, and licensed marriage and family therapist. An award-winning educator, she has a vibrant private practice in Santa Cruz, CA, and travels internationally to speak and teach about positive self-awareness and body love.
