We are all human. It is so easy to fall off the bandwagon and get off track. Remember, those nutrition and exercise goals you set in January? Please, don’t give up on them. I know with summer in full swing — the vacations, family in town, and kids at home (whatever your situation is) it is hard to stay focus and committed to your goals. I am here to offer you motivation and invite you to revisit your goals. Make them a priority again. It is never to late. Here are 3 ways to get back on track:
1. KEEP POSITIVE THOUGHTS
Life can be hard at times. You can feel like you are pulled in so many directions. If you slip up, remember that you are human. Practice, self compassion. Keep positive thoughts alive about yourself. So, that one bite of chocolate cake lead you to eat the entire slice…or more. Let it go and remember that tomorrow is a new day. A new day to try again and practice self-mastery.
2. START SMALL
Do what is doable to set yourself up for success. If you managed to go sugar-free for 30 days but fell off the bandwagon from too many end-of-the-school year parties; don’t put stress on yourself to complete it again perfectly! Change the goal into small benchmark, like going sugar-free for one day. Then, recommit the next day to go sugar-free again. Each effort is good enough. Keep taking those baby steps and pretty soon you will be making great progress.
3. STRIVE FOR PROGRESS
Strive for progress not perfection. Life is a journey. Your health and wellness journey is no different. There will be twist and turns and valleys and peaks. Expecting perfection out of yourself will only create disappointment and pain. Let go of perfection and seek for progress. Celebrate each and every step you take whether big or small. Tomorrow is another chance to reach your goals. Choosing to recommit each day is what is important.
