Meathead Hippie Radio: #43 with Stefani Ruper: On Internal Happiness, Go-Go Dancing, and Low-Carb Fails

“We need to really get on our body’s side. The more you love your body, the more your body will love you back.”

Stefani Ruper provides a perfect reminder for the many listeners who struggle with practicing self-love and body image in this episode of Meathead Hippie. Stefani brings enlightenment on a larger perspective of how fixated our culture has become in how we “should look, act and be” more like and how it is much more powerful AND difficult to not adhere to these norms. To choose to give yourself permission to simply be you, without letting conformity take ahold of any part of your self-love/body awareness journey, is both powerful and sexy.
