Research shows that celebrating even the smallest wins on the path to a goal is key to creating new habits (BJ Fogg, 2009), and even stimulating the plasticity of our brains (Wise et al., 2004) 🌱🌻❤️.
In the context of social anxiety, a small win can be any action you take, despite feeling anxious, like:
- Making a phone call that scares you
- Texted a friend
- Maintaining eye contact during an interaction
- Or even joining this community!
So let’s celebrate your win! If you feel comfortable, we’d like to encourage you to reflect on this question:
What’s a small win that you’d like to celebrate this week?
Feel free to share them in the comments so we can celebrate with you :) I’ll start below!
