Explore how you can embody the principles of the 'Health at Every Size' movement to create wellness practices both satisfying and sustainable. This talk will use research-backed evidence as well as social and political frameworks to illustrate what Health is, what Health is not, and why Health is possible at every size. Themes will include exercise/movement, nutrition, mindfulness, mental/emotional health, relational well-being, and social justice.
