Social Media + Healthy Image

Millions of mothers out there worry about their daughter’s experience on social media. Most mothers tell us how worried they are for their daughters’ to grow up exposed to unhealthy images before they can solidify their own beliefs about who they want to be. It’s hard to grow up confident these days.

That is why we created Mother + Daughter Workshop last year and this is why we are doing it again!

+We will gently guide mothers and daughters into sensitive dialogue such as “what is a healthy body” and how to think about food.

+We will discuss positive and negative sources of influence whether that be sports teams, adults, friends, clubs and more.

+Explore how social media influence can impact a girl’s choice of diet (such as becoming vegetarian or vegan) and their exercise of choice (self-care or self-punishment?).

+Practice gentle yoga to reconnect with your bodies, along with journaling to help us shift negative self talk to positive self talk and affirmations.
