Why This Book

Stress is one of the main reasons we feel negative emotions that can lead to overeating, skipping workouts, and trashing our bodies rather than take care of them. (not Body Kindness)

The truth is, we misunderstand stress, and this books helps you see an upside.

  • You’ll learn how you can use mindfulness as a way to identify stress when it’s happening
  • How to reframe stress as energy for something you care about, and
  • How to set yourself up for thriving through stress and bouncing back from bad things when they happen

How Book Club Works

Get the book and read it at your own pace. Post questions and comments on my Facebook page throughout the month. I’ll share insights on the book in my weekly emails during the #MindfulMarch challenge.

Body Kindness with Rebecca Scritchfield, RDNListen to Episode 5 of Body Kindness, where we discuss mindfulness and how it can help you take better care of yourself. A positive antidote to the diet obsessed world, Body Kindness is grounded in the “radical” idea that health begins by being good to yourself and changing your habits is about love, not hate.
