What does it mean to truly have self-love, body acceptance, and confidence? And does all that ever really have a place in the life of a busy, energetic, high-achieving entrepreneur, neurodivergent mom of two? Jenna Kutcher believes it’s possible because she found it and she lives it.
Jenna Kutcher is the ultimate entrepreneur and mom (and also one of my idols and mentors). She’s the host of the wildly successful The Goal Digger Podcast, has several incredible online courses, and is the author of the book, How Are You, Really?
I have so much love and respect for Jenna because she’s living life authentically according to her values, and she’s showing us what it’s like to be a confident woman in her body (without all the diet culture ridiculousness).
“Real rebellion these days is showing up and believing in yourself in a world that wants you to doubt yourself.” — Jenna Kutcher
What I adore the most is that Jenna talks about making the choice to love her body each day. And not the kind of superficial “love” because she thinks she conforms to the body image ideals of our society. Rather, the kind of self-love that is about feeling at home in our own skin.
If we’re being honest, this is what most of us actually want when we wish we could change our bodies – we simply want to feel comfortable and acceptable in them.
“The way we feel in our own skin influences how we show up in every area of our lives. There are so many times that as women we’ve missed out on opportunities or disqualified ourselves because of how we feel about our bodies.” — Jenna Kutcher
In this episode of the Rebuilding Trust With Your Body Podcast, Jenna shares some wonderful insights and advice about making that choice to practice self-love, and about healing your belief in yourself and your worthiness. You’ll learn:
- Ways to shift your inner dialogue about your body
2. The language she uses with her little girls to help them to grow up loving and accepting their bodies
3. A great tip about using social media to actually improve your body image
4. How to stop limiting yourself in life because of how you feel about your body
5. The inspiration behind her new book, How Are You, Really?
Not only will you come away with some huge mindset shifts on how to view your body differently, but I know that you’ll also see what a great human being Jenna is and why I was so thrilled to have this conversation with her.
