Ep 3 – Body image

All the Questions podcast – Episode Three

What do we think about our bodies? Why do so many women view their bodies negatively? How often do we think about our bodies? What types of things do we think? Do we obsess over bodies too much? Who or what influences our thoughts on body image? Family? Media?

Alana sat down with Tiff and Paige to watch the Embrace documentary and chat body image and being a woman.
