Are you looking for a way to start each day on a positive note, with a boost to your confidence? I’ve got a simple answer for you.
After your morning routine…before you leave the bathroom…give yourself a High 5 in the mirror. Maybe throw in an encouraging word, “You got this!”
No, I’m not crazy…well maybe a little…but this really works. Instead of picking apart the reflection you see in the mirror…the new gray hair, the bags under your eyes, or the extra chin that appeared overnight…greet yourself with the same enthusiasm and encouragement you would offer a dear friend.
I joined Mel Robbins’ High 5 Challenge. I hope you will too. Simply commit to giving yourself a High 5 each morning for five days in a row…no matter how silly you feel. I promise you will notice a difference.
If you are so inclined, share your High 5s on Instagram. Use the hashtag #High5Challenge and tag Mel @melrobbins.
If you still feel stuck…like you aren’t living the life you are intended to live…here is one more bit of advice from Mel:
Think about the person you want to become. What is one thing that person does that you are not doing? Do that thing.Mel Robbins
