The first full work week of the year is almost in the books and many of you have been busy. Trying to jumpstart health, kill it at work, and become a better version of yourself (among other things). All commendable goals, really.
So today the task is oh so simple. Just be kind to yourself about what has gone well and what hasn’t, and move on.
We’ve talked some on this blog about the things you rehearse and the things you internalize — There is a reason for that. Your voice can never be as dynamic, healthy, and impactful as you need it to be while your vagus nerve is in crisis.
So, give yourself a break. Reassess your plans and make the changes necessary to keep your word to yourself. Overall, just be kind especially to yourself.
