Protecting our Self-Esteem and Stress Level with Bryce Batts

SHOW NOTES: Episode 18

On today’s episode, I have Bryce Batts here talking more about self-esteem and stress. Bryce is a certified career coach with 13 years as a recruiter in the AEC industry and she is here sharing so much valuable information with us.

Bryce shares her background of playing sports and how that can sometimes be damaging to your self-esteem. She shares how weigh-ins for sports can truly be something you carry with you later. We talk about how the scale is just one tool that we use and how it does not define your worth. Bryce shares how she is changing the narrative with her two children and helping them to understand that weight is not everything. 

We also chat about reducing stress levels and how moving our bodies helps reduce those stress levels. Some other things that help with stress are: setting the tone for day with a good morning routine, getting outside, finding what works for you to be intentional with moving your body, or listening to music or a podcast.

It’s so important to make sure that you are carving out time for yourself each and every day. Find what works for you and take that time to help your stress levels every day!

Feed Yourself: Healthy Habits for the Mind, Body, & Soul is all about learning the key components of overall health based on Biblical principles. When most people think about getting in shape and becoming “healthy”, they immediately think about their physical health: losing weight, making exercise a priority, possessing flexibility and endurance, and remaining disease free. But Scripture makes it clear that physical wellness is not the only area that impacts health. In order to be TRULY healthy, we have to focus on four areas: spiritual health, emotional health, mental health, and physical health. 

This podcast dives deep into the tools and head knowledge you will need in order to create lasting results, but it also looks at the element that truly ties it all together – the heart knowledge that incorporates faith in God in this area of our lives and how to apply it when things get tough (and they will!).

I wanted to create a space to let you know you are never alone on this journey. Through years of experience in doing everything the WRONG way, I am here to share my journey of getting healthy from the inside out – ditching the restriction and diet culture and truly learning to treat my body as the temple God intended it to be. 

Grab a cup of coffee and join me as I discuss healthy habits to incorporate in your daily life to propel you forward and FEED YOURSELF on your journey to health in all areas: mind, body, and soul!
