What does your body liberation have to do with voting this year? Everything. Everything is on the line this election, up and down the ballot.
Jaclyn Friedman, author of Unscrewed, helps me link body kindness to climate change, economic justice, healthcare, and more. Don’t settle for fauxpowerment.
In this lively episode chat, Jaclyn shares many ways anyone can get fired up to vote or help others get fired up… with joy and connection.
Follow her 3 steps to positive well-being this election season:
1. Look after yourself and make sure you’re safe and secure.
2. Look out for each other. (Your post-it people)
3. Look for opportunities for fun.
And also… if you can do more, do it.
1. Register to vote.
2. Fill out your mail in ballot. Get it in the drop off box ASAP.
3. Check in on friends. Reach out to people you know with texts, emails, or postcards. Offer to help.
