FH INSPIRES: SUNDAY 12.00 - 12.45
body image panel talk
We are all knowledgable on how your health and wellbeing are affected by what you eat and how you move, but very few of us actually take into consideration how we think.
The psychology and mindset around our bodies, the food we eat and how we approach exercise are of equal importance when it comes to our health.
Chessie King, Health and Fitness Influencer and positive body image campaign, talks to experts in body image, Mel Wells and Holli Rubin about how our mindset can affect our health and why finding balance is crucial for your future happiness and health.
Mel Wells is a Health and Eating Psychology Coach, Speaker, and Bestselling Author of The Goddess Revolution, published with Hay House.

Mel also specialises in coaching women with disordered eating, emotional eating and body image, and runs Goddess Retreats at her home in Bali.
As featured in Cosmopolitan, Women’s Health, BBC Radio 1, Forbes, The Guardian and The Telegraph, Mel’s message is all about helping women to look beyond their nutrition – and focus on healing their entire mindset and psychology around food and their bodies, so they can find total freedom, live completely at peace with their food, and create the life of their dreams.
