In this episode, I talk about the societal pressure to make vast changes in work, body image, and parenting as a new year begins. I emphasize the importance of self-compassion and being realistic instead of pushing oneself to perfection. I also introduce the distinction between values and goals, explaining that goals should be driven by one’s values for sustainability and long-term adherence. We address the frustrations of unrealistic New Year’s expectations and the harm of ‘shaming and blaming’. My episode ends with a message of self-acceptance and a note of gratitude.
