Living up to society’s expectations of what your body should look like is exhausting, and hyper-focusing on conforming to societal standards can be harmful to our lives.
But living on the opposite end of the spectrum, where we don’t care what anyone thinks of us at all, is unrealistic for us as human beings.
We’re wired to care, and we’re wired to want to conform.
So rather than spend all of your mental and emotional energy either trying to conform to societal ideals or spend it swimming upstream trying not to care, there’s a balance you can reach that will bring you peace.
In episode 116 of Fitness & Sushi, Tony and I will teach you how to balance your human need for conformity with your mental health need for body autonomy so you can feel peace with your body.
In this episode – “How to Balance the Pressures of Social Conformity With Your Need For Body Autonomy”, you’ll learn…
🔶 Why the goal isn’t to be completely immune to social conformity
🔶 How to know if you’re too far to one side of the spectrum
🔶 Why moving towards body autonomy will make you feel more fulfilled
🔶 How to find your own community that aligns your beliefs with your norms
🔶 Why social conformity isn’t necessarily a bad thing
🔶 Why Deanna is extra paranoid of Tony’s smiles
…and much more!
