Go Team! January 15: Go Easy On Yourself

Hey Team,

I had my booster shot yesterday and I’m feeling under the weather so today’s post will just be a short invitation to go easy on yourself.

Not every day needs to be epic.

Not every workout or every practice has to push you to your limits.

Resting, recovering, and taking good care of yourself is just as important as focused work on your new habits.

And a gentle, kind, encouraging inner monologue will serve you better than a harsh, judgemental one.

Here are some gold stars for for your efforts today, whether you are in work mode, in rest mode, or in figuring-it-all out mode.

Please be kind to yourself.

And if you need a booster shot of encouragement, perhaps you might like to check out this Go Team! post from last year: Give It Your Some

For the second year in a row, I’ll be posting a Go Team! message every day in January to encourage us as we build new habits or maintain existing ones. It’s cumbersome to try to include every possibility in every sentence so please assume that I am offering you kindness, understanding, and encouragement for your efforts right now. You matter, your needs matter, and your efforts count, no matter where you are applying them. You are doing the best you can, with the resources you have, in all kinds of difficult situations and I wish you ease. ⭐💚 PS – Some of the posts for this year may be similar to posts from last year but I think we can roll with it.

  1. Gah, I’m definitely not looking forward to my booster, as I tend to get pretty sick thanks to these shots. Hope you’re feeling better now!

    1. Thanks! I’m mostly tired with a few muscle aches and I have been feeling better as the day goes on. The range of reactions to each shot seems to vary widely so I hope you’ll escape anything too drastic with your booster. Take good care and be kind to yourself about the whole process, pretty please.
