There's a lot of information out there on the world wide webs about health, fitness and wellness. Some if it is helpful. Inspiring, even. But there is a lot of information out there that is not only wrong, but damaging to your confidence and health.
I read this quote in an article today which really resonated with me.
"I think that one reason that celebrities and influencers are so powerful in the health sphere is that we equate beauty, thinness and fame with expertise in health. This isn’t trying to improve physical status, this is trying to fit an aspirational lifestyle that is often through money, genetics and some good photography."
This is so true, isn't it? Just look at the way we're conditioned to think that someone with a tan is healthy, when really it's sun damaged skin that could actually cause cancer.
At Mind.Body.Bike., it's so important to us that the women in our community are encouraged to be confident, no matter what they look like.
