In this episode, Tony and I go deep into a topic that seems to be not necessarily health-related, until you see how much we are (including our bodies) affected by it, and that is…shame. It’s a powerful eye-opener with implications for your self-esteem, stress levels, diet, weight and more. Listen in as we break down this topic and share ways to be more positive in our communities.
