Episode 96: Body Image with Megan Shaver
Today we invited Megan Shaver, mental health coach for Polly Pocket Fitness to discuss body image and how negative self perceptions affect both men and women of all ages. Body image issues begin as early as age 12 for boys and girls, and social media adds fuel to this fire. Megan discusses ways parents can educate and provide love and support for their children who are growing up in our digital age. We also dive into the psychology of fitness competitors, handling the post-show time frame, and how to eventually deal with transitioning out of physique competition.
