In this episode of Eat the Rules, I’m continuing the body image series, talking about why our culture has normalized putting our needs last and why this increases body shame.

I also explore what gets in the way of us putting our needs first and how to change to build self-worth.

In This Episode, I Talk About

  • The meme I posted on Instagram that inspired this episode,
  • How not putting ourselves first reinforces that we’re not good enough,
  • Examples of when I’ve put my own needs last,
  • How we glorify exhaustion, especially of women, in social media,
  • The hustle of trying to achieve the “female ideal,”
  • How the “shoulds” that live in the back of our minds stop us from putting ourselves first,
  • Four reasons we tolerate putting ourselves last,
  • That we can still support the people in our lives, while also putting our needs first,
