Do you compare yourself with others? (raises hand…high). Our podcast guest this week Marci Evans spoke about social comparison theory at our annual nutrition conference, and it was HANDS DOWN the most powerful presentation I have ever been to.
For those who don’t know, social comparison theory states that individuals determine their own social and personal worth based on how they stack up against others. In some cases, comparison can be helpful, but more often than not, it’s bad for our wellbeing. Marci is a registered dietitian and self-proclaimed Food and Body Imager Healer®. If you have ever compared your success, body image, relationship status, friendships or even living situation to anyone else (especially on social media), you HAVE to listen to this episode.
In this episode, we’ll talk about:
- Which personality types tend to be more prone to comparing (hint: people who are empaths)
What happens to our brains when we make these cross-comparisons
Concrete things you can do to compare less, starting NOW (and for free)
How to deal with body image comparisons
How social media exacerbates these concerns
My favorite part was at the end where she talks about two specific resources related to self-compassion that we can all access today
