In today's episode, I’m joined by Alex Light, a woman who is on a mission to promote body confidence and to discuss eating disorder recovery on her platforms.
As a former sufferer, Alex wants to challenge the narrative of thinness equalling happiness, and to raise awareness of the fact that the idea of single ideal perceived body shape is just that - an idea, held by some people, at some moment in time, in some cultures, in some areas of the world.
Alex and I discuss where those messages became internalised for her, and how she weeded them out. We also talk about her favourite beauty products, and, of course, meander off on a few tangents - I’m sure you regular listeners will be expecting that.
