For many of us who struggle with food and our bodies, trauma- whether big or small- is likely a part of our story. Even if you think that your childhood wasn't "that bad" or nothing "really traumatic" happened to you, you may be surprised to know how much we internalize from traumatic moments. In fact, trauma is not defined by the severity of the event, but by the severity of the impact on the individual.
In today's episode, I talk with my dear friend, Lindsay Gibson- author, speaker, trauma and maternal mental health advocate, and devoted mother.

OVERCOME EMOTIONAL EATING
Aside from actually being “thin”, that feeling we are all craving is contentment. We want to get to a point where we just FEEL good about our bodies.
