193-Recover from People Pleasing with Dr. Sasha Heinz

193-IG-People Pleasing-Stephanie Dodier

On today’s episode, we talk about people-pleasing

“…but my priority is my family right now. I don’t have the time to do this work right now or to participate.”

We did a survey a few months ago and asked our community members what is holding them back from doing the “work” meaning healing their relationship to food & body. People-pleasing came in the top 3… specifically #2. These are the women who knew they had these behaviors.

The funny thing is that the #1 reason holding back women from healing their relationship to food and body was: “I need to lose weight. I can’t bear being in this body right now. Got to fix that first before doing mindset work”.  I say funny because that #1 reason is: people-pleasing “in hiding”.

So people-pleasing is a huge theme in our community! That’s what we are going to deep dive on this episode.

Our guest today is Sasha Heinz, PhD and a developmental psychologist. She is an expert in positive psychology, lasting behavioral change, and the science of getting unstuck.

She’s a working mom, she’s lived life on the front line of the battle with perfectionism. So, she is going to help us with that.
