If you’re reading this, I’m willing to bet that you’ve been cruel to yourself when attempting to reach a goal. Whether you were trying to lose weight, train for a marathon, start a business, or what have you, I bet that when you stumbled, you’ve once or twice (or more) had a negative inner dialogue going on. I bet you’ve pushed yourself to burn out or beyond exhaustion.
Most of us do it. But… there’s a better way.
Let’s talk about reframing, taking a pause or a step back as a means of achieving your goals.
It’s a short podcast episode, so take a listen. It’s more of a pep talk and encouragement, really.
Research shows that those who are kind to themselves are more likely to lose weight and keep it off. Studies are also showing that self-compassion might actually be the most critical life skill, making you more resilient and more successful.
Figure out a way to be kind to yourself this week. Maybe that’s taking time for a walk, a bath, or a passion project. Maybe that’s venting with a friend. Maybe that’s getting to bed early and catching up on sleep. Maybe it’s reprioritizing what matters most in your life.
