WANTcast: The Women Against Negative Talk Podcast

Welcome to the WANTcast: The Women Against Talk Podcast — lessons in moving forward fearlessly and spreading the (good) word. In each episode, writer, speaker, coach and WANT founder Katie Horwitch unpacks tips, tools, motivation and inspiration to help you shift your self-talk: the internal narrative you have on loop 24/7 that tells you who you are and who you should be. Dive into topics such as confidence, fear, trust, body image, self-doubt, self-worth, relationships, career, friendships, social issues, and more - and walk away from each episode with actionable steps to shift your narrative from reactive to proactive (as well as inspiration to keep going when the going gets tough). You can't change the world until you change YOUR world, first - and shifting your self-talk is where it all begins. The goal isn't to change who you are - it's to BECOME who you know you're meant to be. New episodes every other Tuesday. Get the show notes + more at womenagainstnegativetalk.com

When you’re feeling down about your body, that feeling can take over — and turning it around can be a lot more complicated than just saying positive affirmations about the skin you're in. How do we move beyond our ideas of what positive body image (and even "body positivity") should look like, and work toward something greater and long-lasting?

Today's guest is Chrissy King, author of THE BODY LIBERATION PROJECT: How Understanding Racism and Diet Culture Helps Cultivate Joy and Build Collective Freedom. In this episode, we talk about:

  • What the difference is between body image, body neutrality, body positivity, and body liberation
  • Why "loving your body" is so freaking hard to do — from both an emotional and societal standpoint
  • What body liberation actually FEELS like (and how you can take steps to get there)
  • How to recocile conflicting thoughts/feelings about your body and the way it should or shouldn't be
  • Why Chrissy says you might experience a grief or mourning of your body while working toward body liberation
  • How to deal with other people's triggering comments
  • ...and more!

ABOUT CHRISSY:

Chrissy King is a writer, speaker, strength coach, and educator with a passion for creating a diverse and inclusive wellness industry. She empowers individuals to stop shrinking, start taking up space, and use their energy to create their specific magic in the world.

With degrees in Social Justice and Sociology from Marquette University, Chrissy merges her passion for Social Justice and her passion for fitness to empower individuals within the fitness and wellness industry to create spaces that allow individuals from all backgrounds to feel seen, welcome, respected, and celebrated.

Everyone has a sensitive side, but nearly one in three people have the genes to be more sensitive than others, both physically and emotionally. They tend to be big hearted, creative, and wired to go deep. Yet society tells them to hide the very sensitivity that makes them this way.

Today's guest is Jenn Granneman, author of the new book SENSITIVE: The Hidden Power of the Highly Sensitive Person in a Loud, Fast, Too-Much World. In this episode, we will talk about:

  • What it actually means to be a sensitive person and a highly sensitive person

  • How to navigate the world on whatever level of the sensitivity spectrum you fall on

  • The (genius!!) word Jenn suggests to describe "sensitive," especially when explaining your sensitivity to others

  • How to avoid feeling bitter about others' lack of sensitivity

  • How to pre-manage events you know will be harder on your sensitivity (ie parties or a day at the office)

  • Why certain self-care practices might work the opposite way you intend them to work for sensitive people, and why some might actually work way better and more efficiently

  • and so much more!!

Take notes, pass this along to another highly sensitive (or as I call it, spongy) person in your life, or maybe even give it to a loved one to help them understand your own sensitivity.
