Tools for Change

Journo Hannah chats with author, speaker and life coach Dr Dain Heer about how to stop judging and love our bodies.

By Hannah Doody | 8th May 2015

Growing up in the ghetto in LA where he was “the only white face for miles”, Dr Dain Heer suffered abuse from a young age. But Dain reached a turning point where he thought to himself, “so what? What are you going to do with your life now?”

15 years later, Dain is facilitating people with the tools they need to be happy. He says nearly everyone experiences some form of body image difficulty, and believes judgement is one of the most damaging things we can put upon ourselves.

Dain suggests some tips to set you on the path to loving your body:

1.    Recognise judgement – notice you’re judging your body and make the choice to do something different.
2.    Ask yourself “where did this judgement come from?”  If the judgement is not coming from yourself, pin point where it is coming from and return to sender.
3.    Asking a question will empower – questions such as “what’s right about my body that I’m not getting?” or “what will it take to change?” takes out the wrongness, sets you on a different mental track and can be the catalyst for change.
4.    Create a connection – your relationship with your body is like that with another human being. Ask your body “what would you like to eat, drink, wear?” When you have a connection, your body will change just by you asking.
