THE SELF-LOVE EXPERIMENT
Listen to the Big Blend Radio interview with best-selling author Shannon Kaiser, who discusses her latest book, “THE SELF-LOVE EXPERIMENT: Fifteen Principles for Becoming More Kind, Compassionate, and Accepting of Yourself”.
In our constant quest to be happier, skinnier, smarter, and more wealthy – outward expressions of achievement in our society – we’re living our daily lives based on some notion that we aren’t enough as we are. The fact is that many of us just don’t like ourselves all that much: 90% of women reportedly hate their bodies, twice as many American women than men are on antidepressants, and studies estimate 10 million women and girls suffer from eating disorders. We go out of our way to sabotage ourselves in a myriad of ways by picking the wrong partner, overeating, overspending, or overworking. We’re suffering from a self-care deficit, and Shannon Kaiser knows it’s a time we made a change.
An international empowerment coach and bestselling wellness author, Kaiser struggled first hand with eating disorders, drug addictions, corporate burnout, and depression. Self-criticism and loathing formed the backbone of Shannon’s relationship with herself. In her new release, THE SELF-LOVE EXPERIMENT: Fifteen Principles for Becoming More Kind, Compassionate, and Accepting of Yourself, Kaiser shares the personal challenge she designed to explore the self-harming beliefs that were holding her back, and learn how to take action, lighten up, and increase her self-confidence, self-acceptance, and accountability.
Having successfully turned her life around for the better, Kaiser knows personal development is not a one-size-fits-all journey. A compassionate guide, The Self-Love Experiment instead provides the tools to help readers make the most out of life, such as:
– How to unlearn all the things we are conditioned to believe about ourselves, and retrain our brains to focus on self-love as opposed to self-condemnation,
– How to identify our own value system and align it with our own path,
– How to develop and follow a Me Matters list of the mandatory things we need to pursue for our ideal day,
– How to appreciate where you’ve been, who you are becoming, and what you have to offer.
Part memoir, part psychological study, part inspirational personal development guide, THE SELF-LOVE EXPERIMENT invites readers to dedicate themselves to self-care, self-compassion, and self-acceptance, as they learn to become their own best friend.
