This second part is all about consistency! Specifically about when you find it hard to be consistent with staying on track.
So I ask you this "do you struggle with being consistent and eventually fall off the wagon and revert back to square one?
You’re not alone! This is totally normal.
There is a misconception out there that in order to lead a healthier lifestyle we must be consistent and never falter otherwise we have failed.
But this perception in itself sets us up to fail and is simply not true.
This perception comes from dieting, where in order to lose weight you must diet consistently for a certain period of time and not falter in order to lose weight.
When you try anything new you are never consistent at it because it’s new and foreign to you… it takes time to master it.
Just like riding a bike… you fell off and got back on numerous times until you mastered the art of balance.
It the same for leading a healthier lifestyle you are learning to go from having unhealthy habits to healthy habits.
This is not something that can be done over night because these unhealthy habits come with emotional ties, cravings and addictions which cause us to fall off the wagon (just as not having balance causes us to fall off the bike).
But what makes the transition easier is by looking at why you fell off the wagon, what you can put in place next time to prevent or reduce the occurrence and then dust yourself off and start again.
The more you do this the easier it will become and the less you’ll fall off the wagon.
So your challenge today is to have a think about the last time you fell off the wagon and what you could put in place to prevent or reduce it from occurring in the future.
You’ll be surprised at how a few simple changes can make a big difference and how simple and easy it can be.
Take action now! To help you feel supported and accountable share the one change you made in the Healthy Habits Made Easy Facebook Group so we can all cheer you on! Tomorrow I'll be sharing the third part of the series which is all about how to prevent feeling stagnant and board once you've begin to put new changes/habits in place.
