celebrate every body

Celebrate Every Body is:

A weight-neutral approach to healthy living for people of ALL shapes and sizes, through

  • Mindful eating (NOT dieting!),
  • Energizing activity (movement of all types),
  • Rejuvenating rest (adequate sleep and downtime), and
  • Solid support (social connections, stress management strategies, spirituality).

Celebrate Every Body Week is February 22-26, 2016
