If there is one episode of Harder to Kill Radio that you are going to listen to, this is it. Dr. Lexie Kite and her twin sister Dr. Lindsay Kite are trailblazers in the body image realm and are shattering the societal beauty standards surrounding women, children, and everything in between.
Dr. Lexie harnessed her past pain and body shame to identify an issue that women and girls around the world are dealing with, and together the Kite sisters have started a body revolution with their non-profit, Beauty Redefined.
About Beauty Redefined
Beauty Redefined is different than the other body image messages out there. Dr. Lexie is shining a light on all the ways your body and mind have been co-opted by systems that keep you fixated on your body image, and is providing tools to help you rise with resilience in the face of that pain. She is also providing stepping stones to change how you view your body throughout your life as an opportunity to grow.
Some real truth bombs are being dropped today as Dr. Lexie touches on everything from the ways that women and girls are raised differently than men, to viewing the ways that women are objectified as a launching point for greatness, and why you need to start viewing your body as an instrument instead of an ornament.
Dr. Lexie and Dr. Lindsay have pioneered some new approaches to how we think about our bodies, health, and confidence. Dr. Lexie is an advocate of compassion for yourself and others, the power of body image resilience and the need for education around self-objectification. This episode is almost guaranteed to highlight an issue that every woman has dealt with, and Dr. Lexie’s open and honest approach to breaking free of societal standards is refreshing and important.
