Podcast 136: Listener Q&A – Can I learn to like exercise? How do I address co-workers food shame?
Bernie Salazar and I respond to two listener questions. Paula says she hates to exercise and though she wants to get moving, she feels “stuck” because her most enjoyable activities are performed in a chair or cozy sofa. We help her think through options without judgment or shame.
Then, podcast listener Lytisha works in food justice and is noticing how her co-workers may be unintentionally shaming how she and others eat as the work is focused on increasing access to fresh, wholesome foods.
