The Importance of Celebrating your Wins!
Do you stop and celebrate your wins?
It's so easy to let weeks go by, nose to the grindstone, achieving goals, ticking them off and then immediately turning our attention to the next task on our to-do list.
Do you know what happens in the brain when you celebrate your wins?
Yes! It releases lots of 'feel good' chemicals including:
1. Dopamine: This neurotransmitter is associated with pleasure and reward. It is released when we experience something positive, such as achieving a goal or receiving recognition for our accomplishments.
2. Serotonin: This neurotransmitter is associated with feelings of well-being and happiness. It is released when we feel proud of ourselves and our achievements.
3. Endorphins: These are natural painkillers that are released in response to physical activity, such as dancing or exercising. They can also be released when we experience positive emotions, such as excitement or joy.
4. Oxytocin: This hormone is often called the "love hormone" because it is released during social bonding and positive interactions with others. It is also released when we experience feelings of pride and accomplishment.
Together, these chemicals contribute to the positive feelings we experience when we celebrate success.
This can help to motivate us to continue showing up and doing our best. It makes work and life more fun!
This week I'm celebrating the success of one of my clients who worked with me to overcome crippling imposter syndrome that was impacting her performance in interviews and now she's landed a new job!
On a personal level, I'm celebrating that this week I've been really organised in the kitchen and even on days when I've worked late, I've had everything ready to cook a quick, healthy dinner.
What are you celebrating this week? It doesn't have to be big, all the small wins add up so it's important to celebrate the journey, not just reaching the final destination.
