Welcome to the Daily Distance, a new daily series from the creators of #WeGotGoals. In these short episodes, we’re bringing you one daily goal you can set for yourself during this chaotic time- one actionable thing you can do to move your body, connect with a friend, prioritize your mental health, get some work done, and practice a little bit of self-care.
Today, Kristen connects with Elsa Guenther, a Rochester-based health coach. She’s encouraging us to practice positive self-talk, especially at a time when we all need to be giving ourselves grace. Talk to yourself like you would talk to your best friend, smile even if you don’t feel like it, and see how that changes your mindset and your actions. Remember, you talk to yourself more often than you talk to anyone else—so make the conversation a happy one.
