Go Team: Find A Win And Celebrate It

So, Team, we’re almost at the end of August and I think it’s time to remind ourselves of some wins from the year so far.

Whether your fitness/wellness plans have been going exactly as you thought they would or whether you are now following a whole different path than you anticipated, you have done a lot of things right.

I’d like you to make a list of those things, big or small, and find a way to acknowledge and celebrate them.

Perhaps you’ve accomplished a specific goal or met a certain fitness target.

Maybe you have found more ways to fit rest into your day.

Or you’ve talked yourself into going for a walk more often.

Perhaps you’ve meditated or done yoga or done some canoeing.

Or maybe you’ve tried stretching your neck while waiting for webpages to load.

The size of the win doesn’t matter. The fact that you have deliberately worked to improve your own well-being does, and it is worthy of celebration.

Please tell me about your wins in the comments and I will celebrate with you.

Here’s a gold star for your efforts!

One thought on “Go Team: Find A Win And Celebrate It

  1. Almost every day I have done some intentional physical activity – even if it’s just a walk. And when I haven’t hit that on a day – whether because I’m too tired, poor planning, or demands of work – I am trying to tell myself “that’s okay”. I also try to consciously seek out things that make me smile – often videos of kittens/cats, dogs, goats, lambs that people post online. Or a new flower in the garden. Or coffee. Whatever!
