This week’s topics: Hobbies + body image + being kinder to ourselves

An illustration of a nighttime forest and a quilted yellow tent, with warm light spilling out.

This week in the Body Liberation Blanket Fort we’re talking about hobbies and how they affect body image, and journaling about how we can be kinder to ourselves.

The Body Liberation Blanket Fort is my body-positive, fatphobia-free community space on Discord. It’s open to people of all sizes (though we center fat folks) and is a safer space to hang out, make friends and share our lives.

All you need to get access is to support my work at any level, starting at USD $1.00 a month.

If you’re a patron, you already have access. (Woohoo!) To get in, follow these instructions to make your Discord account and join us.
