Eat the Rules with Summer Innanen

I’m breaking down 7 ways we bring perfectionism into body acceptance work and what to do instead. I also talk about how perfectionism and struggling with body image go hand in hand, and the importance of adjusting your measurements of success, as part of the Body Image Series.
