Audra Baker

I want to make something clear: setbacks in life are not the exception. They are the rule. So, in this episode of the Hello Body Freedom podcast, I dive into the topic of handling setbacks on your health and weight loss journey. I’ll share my personal experience of getting sick and how it affected my progress. 

I’ll dive into:

❗Recognizing the role you play in your setbacks.

❗How to catch your negative thoughts when setbacks occur.

❗Decide what you want to believe and move forward. 

❗Ho to focus on the positive and make the next best decision that aligns with your goals.

Setbacks can be tough, but they're also growth opportunities. By owning our role in them, catching our negative thoughts, and deciding to believe in our resilience, we can turn setbacks into stepping stones toward our goals.
