Now is the Time Conference

I am so excited to be speaking at the "Now is the Time" conference through UW-Whitewater where I will have the opportunity to speak to adults who work with youth and young adults about the role of social media and its effects on mental health and wellness.

Here is a bit more about my session:

Social Media: Friend or Foe? Understanding the role and implications of social media and technology on youth

Description/Objectives: Cell phones, laptops, tablets…the presence of technology is becoming ubiquitous especially among young people. According to a study done in 2010 at the Pew Research Center, 24% of teens admit to going online “almost constantly” — this is undoubtedly linked to the widespread availability of smartphones,  92% of teens report going online at least once a day, and 56 percent admit they go online “several times” a day which means only 8 percent of teens are able to resist going online every day and 88% of teens ages 13-17 say they have a cell phone with 90% of them say they use them to text. In fact, the average teen sends and receives 30 texts per day (not including messaging apps like Facebook message). While we may not understand it, like it or be familiar with it, social media and technology is here and plays a significant role in young people’s lives and it is our job to embrace that fact and learn both the possibilities and potential dangers to its use. Join me in a discussion about the role technology plays in teenagers' and young adults’ lives and find ways to better engage with and support those whom you are working with.

Already Enough: Yoga for Every Body, As They Are

Join us for a day devoted to self love and connecting with your body. As many of you know, the #ReclaimBeauty project fights for the right every person has to feel beautiful and worthy EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. And yet, too often, we are bogged down by images in the media, people around us, and most infamously "shoulds" and "supposed tos" we have absorbed from the world we live in. We are made to feel like we have to keep chasing some unattainable and unrealistic image and we find ourselves empty and depleated of any positive energy to keep moving forward.

Embrace February Film Screening

Embrace February Film Screening

"Embrace" by Taryn Brumfitt is back for a 5th Madison, Wisconsin screening on February 8, 2017!

Join us for this screening of "Embrace"-- a powerful documentary about body and self acceptance. This film is amazing. Transformative-- and so we want to make sure more people in the Madison area have the opportunity to see it. (Our first and second screenings are sold out. If we could, we'd put it on every screen in town!) Reserve your tickets now and please spread the word. We need prior reservations in order to secure the screening through Gathr Films.

**Please stay for our post-film discussion!**

Brought to you by la lingerie, llc, Brava Magazine, Head in the Game Fitness, Kinda Kreative, LLC and Larkspur Collaborative Coaching.

Watch the trailer, here.

From HuffPost: "In May 2013, Brumfitt posted a “before and after” photo on Facebook that received more than 3 million “likes” — but this side-by-side wasn’t showing off a flat stomach post-weight loss. The “before” shot was from when she was in a body building contest, and the “after” was post birth. In the video, Brumfitt explains why she thinks the photo got so much attention. “Because heaven forbid a woman can love her body, after,” she said.

Since that image went viral, she has dedicated her time to speaking and writing about body love through her project, Body Image Movement. Now, she’s focusing her efforts on creating the documentary, and has turned to KickStarter to help fund its production."
