[Listen] How to Keep A “What I’m Proud Of” Journal

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. 

Kirstie Castaneira Biehl, aSweatLife ambassador and an event planner in real life, calls in to chat with Kristen. Feeling uninspired by daily gratitude when every day feels the same, Kirstie decided to start a “what I’m proud of” journal, where she keeps track of anything she’s done that day that made her feel accomplished (even if that’s drinking a bottle of wine). They also chat book recommendations, how Instagram can be an accountability tool, and when Phoebe will be on the podcast (IYKYK).
