    You'd be hard pressed to find a woman today who never hated something about her body. Our society is so focused on how we look, and it's hard not to covet what we can't have. But that's the important part: we can't have it. Sure you have have surgery, you can diet and work out, but so much of how we look comes down to genetics. But you just can't change your DNA, no matter how badly you wish you could. Instead of channeling your feelings into body hatred, surround yourself with people who make you feel good, learn to love what you have, and realize that we are worth so much more than how we look.   Coveting other people's bodies [5:59] How we look is mostly based on genetics [8:42] Every body is different and every body is beautiful [10:47] Find people who make you feel good enough [13:13] Unfollow what triggers you, but understand why [14:46] Tastes will change—yours and society's [16:56] Get right with what you have [17:55] So much of beauty is subjective [21:08] Your body is not your worth [23:23] Find what makes you feel good [25:33] Start with neutrality before you get to love [28:48] Confidence is true beauty [30:11]   Check out Ep. 118: It's Never Too Late to Get Fit with Jamie Eason   thehappinessdiet.com   Get 20% OFF Organifi products at organifi.com using code ‘thebestlife'   Don't forget to leave us a review and subscribe so you never have to miss an episode!

    We all know someone who seems to always be going through a crisis. Do bad things happen to some people more than others? And if that's true, are they manifesting the bad stuff, or is it all perspective? In any case, people rarely do something unless they're getting something out of it. Sometimes, the victim role is comfortable and familiar. Sometimes, it's easier to just push through the hard shit and ignore the bad feelings.

Well, that's really up to you. The way we see it is this: it's your personal brand, and if it really matters to you, you should be able to talk about it.

In almost any scenario, extreme measures cause extreme rebounds, and if you're really looking to build mental-fortitude or change your body, baby steps are the way to make that change last.
