THE INTERVIEW

Lo Bosworth is the BEST. She walks the talk when it comes to supporting women. Many of you probably know her from seeing her grow up on The Hills and Laguna Beach — and she shares how difficult it is to be in the spotlight at such a young age.  Post TV stardom, Lo has found her passion — women's health and wellness. She is the founder and CEO of Love Wellness, a company that strives to help women feel authentically their best. She does not neglect the mental health part of wellness either. She is so refreshingly open about her anxiety and struggles with mental health. We dive into health and wellness, making a pivot in your life, building a brand, female friendships, and being vulnerable.

 

We also talk about:

  • Growing up in the spotlight
  • From influencer to business owner
  • Creating an authentic business and brand
  • Fixing your gut health
  • Doing an elimination diet to figure out how your body reacts to food
  • Supporting women

THE SOLO

So many women are still in the process of healing the trauma and programming that they’ve grown up with, and there is so much unlearning to do. The best part of our 30’s has been learning to accept + love our bodies more. We spent too much damn time + energy on what we eat, what we look like, working out, and everything else, and it’s such a relief to now just ride the wave and listen to the signals your body is giving you. And the best part? You don’t have to wait until your 30s to do this work!!

 

We also talk about:

  • How sharing our body journeys is powerful
  • Seeing food as a threat
  • When to seek a professional
  • Being radically honest with yourself
  • Shifting your focus away from appearances
  • How to use tools like mindfulness, meditation, + self-talk
  • Self-love mantras
  • Having a personalized approach to health, fitness, + acceptance
  • Removing foods that cause binging
  • Unlearning what you’ve been taught to think about your body
