Too Hard On Yourself? 3 Steps To Feeling Better

    It’s Labor Day here in the US, so I’m making this short + sweet today. (Hope you’re taking a break from work today too.)

    As you begin September, start noticing the story you are telling yourself – about your looks, your career, your relationships, your life.

    Is it kind? If not, it’s time to change the story.

    It’s so easy to judge and label ourselves (and others) and attach all kinds of meaning to what is or isn’t going on at any given moment.

    Just by scrolling through your social media feed, you are making conclusions about yourself, as you compare your life, looks or career to another’s “highlight reel.”

    (Yes, I do this too. Comparing myself to JLo inspired this recent blog post: “3 Steps To Recover From Social Media Stress.”)

    But, when you become more conscious of your words, thoughts + actions, you can change them more easily, and start feeling better.

    So, the next time you hear a negative voice in your head tell you that “You’re not _______ enough.”

    1. Stop.
    2. Become aware that this is a story you are telling yourself (and that it’s disempowering).
    3. Start telling a new story.

    It’s not about lying to yourself, but about being as gentle with yourself as you would with a small child.

    As you begin to tell yourself a new story, your life will become a mirror of the story you tell.

    Sure, this takes mindful awareness and daily practice, but when you begin to change your inner dialogue (and lead with love), you’ll start to notice how your interactions with others shift for the better as well too.

    Here’s to a month of recognizing where you have been hard on yourself (or others) and making a conscious choice to change the story.

    What you say to yourself that’s unkind? Let me know here on the blog + then rewrite the story.

    Love + Gratitude,
