While I am a huge proponent of daily exercise in any form, I have a hard time with the social reminder that I must equate my worth to how I look come spring, and not how I feel. I began a mantra last March as I started to emerge from my greatest accomplishment to date; labor and delivery.
I quickly coined this my 'be kind' mantra. It's pretty simple really. Before I have a chance to self-criticize, I would tell myself to be kind. It started off as a 'fake it until you make it' deal but I realized that as the days ticked on, this mantra did more for my soul than I can explain. It was ultra-healing and empowering. That being said, not every day was like this.
