In this episode we talk to Slow Living coach Rachelle Glendon about the benefits of concsiously slowing down on all of our relationships.
In this chat we talk about;
* implementing some matriachal ways, which sound so good
* tips for slowing down
* how slow living challenges your own unhealthy beliefs and invites healing
* how slow living moves you from resentment and passive aggressive communication to nurture.

Why is a relationship coach / therapist writing a book about body image I hear you ask?
That's because the Beauty Load, body image, how we feel about ourselves and our confidence with fitting in in the world, are all relationship issues. I don't know about you but my body was front and centre as I stepped into relationship and sexual intimacy as a young adult.
Listen in as I share how my book The Beauty Load is a relationship book in so many ways.

Sometimes we feel wrong for feeling the Beauty Load, especially when our males partner's or friends just don't get it. But the stress and concern of the Beauty Load is real and in this episode I share an example that demonstrates how differently the Load is experienced, generally speaking, by women and men.

In this special Beauty Load episode of the podcast, I am reading the first chapter (the introduction) of my new book The Beauty Load, how to feel enough in a world obsessed with beauty. 
The message of my book is basically that you feeling not "enough" about your looks is not personal, it is not about you and your looks but instead it is inevitable if you have grown up in a culture with such toxic messaging and an obsession with beauty. 

To buy the book, go to nicolemathieson.com/thebeautyload/

or pop over to Amazon, Booktopia or The Book depository.

There is a lot going on in the world at the moment that can leave us feeling a bit or a lot traumatised. I am inspired to share this "what not to do" episode, because of what I see happening around me, and that is people who have been through a lot, not allowing themselves the space and nurture they need, because there are others struggling more than them. We compare and we think "I should not be worried!" but this just keeps us stuck.

If there is one thing the Beauty Load pressure leaves us women with, it is a sense of shame. We are shamed on so many fronts on all aspects of our body and appearance.
In this episode I explore the shame, grandiosity loop and how we can get out of it to create a new culture, at least for ourselves.

There are a lot of books out there about loving our body and the issues that come with it, so why have I written another book about it?
In this episode I share with you my motivations for writing this book:

-from my own struggles with feeling enough
-to the impact the Beauty Load has on my clients and friends
-seeing women in Cuba who didn't seem to be struggling in the same way
-my fear for my own children
-and our need to unpack this patriarchal, consumerist craziness
