Additional Information

Let’s be honest: most people are unhappy with at least some aspect of their physical appearance. Just think of all the money we spend each year trying to improve our looks! But if worrying about your appearance is getting in the way of living, maybe it’s time to start thinking about body image in a completely new way.

Based in proven-effective acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), Living with Your Body and Other Things You Hate offers a unique approach to addressing your struggle with body image. In this book, you will not be told that your self-perceptions are wrong, that your thoughts are irrational, or that your feelings are misguided. Instead, you will learn to live with the reality that these often painful thoughts and beliefs about yourself will arise from time to time, and that what is really important is accepting these distressing thoughts without allowing them to dominate your life.

You know what it’s like to constantly be checking the mirror, to avoid certain social situations where your body may be exposed, or to gaze longingly at a fashion model in a magazine and think, “Why can’t I be her?” But what you may not know is that people who struggle with negative body image are at an increased risk for depression, anxiety, eating disorders, and low self-esteem. Body image problems can even lead to major financial issues. By focusing on your appearance and little else, you are hurting yourself in more ways than one.

If you are ready to find a purpose in life that is more important than the pain you feel about your appearance, this book provides a truthful, powerful resource.

Dr. Emily K. Sandoz, along with Troy Dufrene, walks readers through how difficult thoughts and feelings may have come to be present in our lives - and gently guides us to notice the areas of our lives that have been negatively influenced by struggles with body image. She uses exercises, in both written and audio-recorded formats, to help readers become mindful of the present moment and of their values. In Living with Your Body..., readers will learn to focus on moving toward valued activities, rather than struggle with attempts to make bad thoughts or feelings about their bodies go away.

What I LOVE about this book is that there is an emphasis on the reader being a whole human, regardless of physical appearance or physical functioning - and regardless of struggles with anything related to body image. These struggles are generally defined in a very broad manner. There are a number of books that cover body image. However, if you pick them up, you quickly discover that they... Read more
Applying ACT to body image is a great way to help someone become clearer on what truly gives their life meaning and direction, and to live those values body image and all. I have been recommending it to clients and find it helpful. Glad it's available.
I did not find this book helpful, interesting or worth the price. Do not buy.
