One of the most challenging aspects of our #stayhome order was, of course, our isolation from friends and family. Even though our #stayhome order is lifted, we still need to practice physical distancing from our friends. Boo hoo:(
Because we can't hug, or shake hands, or give actual high-fives and fist-bumps, we have 2 #stayhome Bingo squares that are designed to help us be supportive and give words and Emojis of encouragement to each other.
I absolutely love encouraging people. When I say something positive it helps change my mindset as well. These past 6 weeks I have given more fist-bumps and comments on Beyond the Whiteboard than ever before.
Now that we have a Strava club I have been giving Kudos and comments to all of our TSCF peeps and several of my college friends who I haven't seen in years. I love to see where people are hiking, running, climbing and cycling. I just learned from one of our TSCF folks that you can attach photos to your Strava post. I can't wait to integrate that into our #getout challenge!
Obviously, one of my love languages is words and I just love telling people how amazing they are. That's also why I write this daily blog and send postcards to people on their birthday and TSCF anniversary.
Receiving something in the mail is almost nostalgic in these digital days. Receiving a kudos card every month is our way of telling our members that what you do matters. It's our way of celebrating your firsts and bests, and it reminds you of your accomplishments. How many times have you received your kudos card and forgotten that you actually did that thing? Right! Most of the time.
Why not pay forward that feeling and handwrite and mail a note to someone? It can be a distant family member, a gym buddy (ask your Coach for their address) or it can even be to your Coach (we like to hear we're doing a good job too:)
We need more positive vibes these days and giving someone encouragement on BTWB, Strava or via a handwritten note can be just the thing to make you BOTH feel good. Let's fill our world with positiveness!
