EP239: Hungry For More with Mel Wells
Mel Wells is with us today and I loved her BIG TRUTH, “We all learn best by watching what others do rather than by listening to what they say.”
We took this truth and talked about:
-How people can use social media for a range of things from judgment to self-love
-How diet culture shatters people’s ability to see their greatness
-Her take on the body positivity movement
-Hunger, cravings, and how food decisions can reflect your relationship to your life
She also let me ask her a ton of questions about her former life as a soap opera actress in the UK and what it was like when she came here to the US and started auditioning. It was fascinating, enjoy!
