High Five Yourself

I fell in love with Mel Robbons’ wit, wisdom, and realness. Mel’s most recent book, The High Five Habit, launched in September 2021, took three years to write. The idea of high-fiving herself in the mirror came out of a moment of feeling despair, despondence, and just not her best. This powerful tool, which I’ve now been trying every morning (and ok, in the evenings too, because why not!?), is life-changing. It’s so simple yet so darn powerful. The question to ask yourself is, ‘What does the person in the mirror need from me today?’ We’re so programmed to ignore or criticize ourselves. When you start the high five process, expect that it could feel weird, you could burst into tears (pure emotional release), resist it, or even giggle back at yourself. We’ve bought into the fallacy that we must DO something to be worthy. This belief is utter B.S. When you stand in front of the mirror, you drag your past resistance and opinions of self regret. You’re showing yourself a willingness to forgive yourself and see your humanity from a more positive, even divine lens. Getting to the heart of how we build ourselves up, starting with a high five can be found within the pages of The High Five Habit.


5-Day High Five Challenge

The High Five Habit book is truly a movement to help you have your own back! Your life will high-five you back. Your inner critic will be silenced (um, yes, please!), and it will be replaced with a high five programming. 

The result for Mel Robbins and millions of others are having a profound sense of love, connection, and compassion for yourself. 

Mel has created a fantastic 5-Day High Five Challenge, which I’ll certainly be doing. If you want to sign up, just go to 5-Day High Five Challenge to sign up now.
