Are you worried about COVID weight gain?
Are you being hard on yourself or mobilizing that negative self-talk inner critic?
I could say, just stop it, but we all know it’s not that easy.
We’ve all been through a lot with COVID and are learning how to merge into life again.
Have grace and compassion for yourself.
First, recognize when you are triggered and being hard on yourself and how it comes up in your body. It’s okay.
Breathe in and out through your nose to calm. Put your hand over your heart or give yourself a little nurturing hug. Disrupt the negative self-talk by standing up, going outside for a few minutes, or try talking with self-compassion to yourself like you would a friend who is being hard on themselves.
All change starts with loving ourselves, but first you have to recognize when you are giving that inner critic all your power. You’ve got this! Check out my daily mini podcast episodes IME Community Radio Blasts to get your day started with self-love! On my playlist for the day is a song from my favorite band, U2, “Sometimes You Can’t Make It on Your Own”, which means we’re all in this together. Let’s co-create IME Community!
