In today's episode of Holistic Health Radio I take a deep dive into the new Barbie Movie and the themes it touches on including body image, self-esteem and societal expectations. In this episode I discuss:

  • The unrealistic body standards of Barbie
  • The contrast between Barbie Land and The Real World and how this mimics a lot of themes between girlhood and adulthood
  • The pressure we place on ourselves due to societal expectations as presented in America Ferrara's monologue
  • Discussion of how social pressures can play out and influence our relationship with food, exercise and our body
  • Why improving self-esteem and self-worth is a cornerstone of healing from disordered eating or an eating disorder

Episodes mentioned within this podcast that are worth a listen:

  1. Episode 156: How to go from hating your body to accepting and appreciating it
  2. Episode 160: Overcoming comparison in recovery with Sabine McKenzie
  3. Episode 181: Raising self-esteem and rebuilding self-worth with psychotherapist Natalie A. Rose
