Live in the body you deserve

Why I Take Cold Showers

Have you ever taken an ice-cold shower?

The kind of shower that makes you lose your breath, hold in your pee, and produce a high pitched sound that only your neighbor’s dog can hear?

Sounds a little insane as I describe it. Who would intentionally torture themselves in this way?

Me… a bunch of other crazy health nuts… and soon to be you. Just grab your privates, count to three, and jump in!

In today’s video, I not only talk about the benefits of taking cold showers, I share with you something more important about why this practice makes me an expert in something we all wish we had more of… strong and consistent discipline.

What an amazing day! Thank you to everyone who came to my talk. I know you had a ton of choices and I’m glad you picked me. 
I loved meeting each of you to sign your books and I sent you each a silent prayer that you feed your soul and live life fulfilled 💋 #sxsw2019

When how I look determines whether or not I feel worthy of love, acceptance, or praise, I feel like crap. My mind tells me that only a flat stomach, small thighs and toned arms are the standard of my beauty, of my “enough”ness.

When how I feel is determined by all of the loving things I tell myself about my imperfect body, I feel whole, grounded and at peace. It motivates me to do more good things for my body, like exercise, eating well, drinking more water. I do these things out of love, not fear, because my worthiness is no longer a factor.
