Strategies For Prioritizing Health & Wellness In A Positive Way 

There can be a fine line between encouraging healthy habits in our children and creating negative thoughts on body image and self-perception. We want the best for our children, but often forget that they are watching how we treat ourselves and model their own behaviors after that. 

Join us for this quick, practical class, where we will: 

● Discover ways to speak about our bodies that encourage body positivity for our children

● Discuss the reasons why we need to model healthy behaviors for our children 

● Develop a plan to include quick healthy practices into your daily life and encourage healthy habits in your children without adding pressure or negative connotations.
