How To Bounce Back From Setbacks
Know when to leave the pity party.
Everyone has an "off" day, but it doesn't equate to an "off" life. It's ok to cry and let yourself think about what has gone wrong, but know when to dry your eyes and move on.
Listen to your body, not your pride.
There's no shame in taking some time off to rest and regroup. It doesn't make you weak, it makes you smart!
Surround yourself with positive people.
Find the people who support you and are there to pick you up and dust you off when you fail. These are "your people".
Find the good in the bad.
Maybe you didn't run that entire 5k. Maybe you only ran for 5 minutes of it. The point is, you accomplished something you couldn't previously do. Remember to look on the bright side.
Meet yourself where you are.
There are days when you are a powerhouse and days when you need to treat yourself a bit more gently. Learn to recognize the difference and adjust accordingly.
Tell your inner critic to zip it.
Your thoughts can have a direct impact on your brain's ability to perform. Lost the self-sabotage and talk to yourself like you would talk to a loved one.
