What do you feel when you look at yourself in the mirror? 

In 2020, Mel Robbins found herself spiraling with panic and fear in the thick of the pandemic. It was the same panic and anxiety she felt when her entire world fell apart in 2008, and she found herself knee-deep in $800,000 of debt.. She saw herself in the mirror, raised her hand, and gave herself a high-five. She did it again the next day and the day after that. Her fear subsided, and The High 5 Habit was born. 

Mel Robbins Explains Why Adding a High Five to Your Morning Routine Can Shift Your Mindset for Life.

Mel Robbins is living proof that breakdowns lead to breakthroughs. Yet even with financial success, recognition, and all other societal markers of success, you can still feel jealous, hurt, triggered, and helpless. Throughout all of it, you deserve a pat on the back, or better yet, a high five in the mirror. 

In this episode, Mel shares the science behind the simple act of raising your hands, stressing the importance of celebrating the small wins and why one effortless, free, and slightly cringe-inducing action, can change the course of your day.
