Season 2, Episode 243: Body Consciousness & Self-Acceptance

Today, Michael is joined by Michelle Hubbard, who you may remember from Season 1, Episode 27. Michelle is a Hendricks Institute certified coach as well as a graduate of their Leadership and Transformation program, and she is the author of the new book, Sour Notes, which you’ll hear a bit about in today’s show.

  • Ways to practice greater self-acceptance and self-love
  • and more…
