Eat the Rules with Summer Innanen

I’m talking about overcoming mirror-checking and mirror avoidance. I also talk about why mirror-checking is often a hidden substitute for the scale, whether you should take a break from mirrors, and when it’s appropriate to use mirrors to heal body image, as part of the Body Image Series.
