Kristyn Pscolka, Staff Writer

Hello and welcome to my podcast! My name is Kristyn Pscolka and I’m here to talk about the real deal with mental health. Anxiety, depression, and eating disorders are all things I have gone through. I am recovering everyday from my eating disorder and I’m so glad to say that I am doing much better! Everybody is struggling with something, so why do we push those feelings away? Let’s dive into some deep convos and help build each other up.

So many of us love the summer time, but a lot of us are scared to wear less clothing (bathing suits, tank tops, shorts, etc…) If you struggle with an eating disorder and/or body image, have a listen! Kristyn gives 4 great tips to start practicing to be on your way to a more confident version of you. Kristyn mentions how she has been watching “Lizzo’s Watch Out for the Big Grrrls” and how Lizzo’s confidence is so empowering. Kristyn talks about facing your insecurities and how to practice looking at your body and learning to love it. This is not going to happen overnight, practice makes progress.
