Never Miss Twice!
- for years my husband and I had a green smoothie every single morning until last year sometime when we fell off the wagon. Now we only here and there have one - the great, healthy habit we had (for way more than 66 days) is gone and we haven't been able to get back on track
- In spring I meditated for 96 days in a row and then fell off the wagon July 8th. I meditated again July 9, 13, 22, 23, 24, 25th and then fell off the wagon completely and have not been able to get back on
- also in spring, I did my moon gymnastics every day for 5 minutes for a total of 54 days. Even though I felt good and the gymnastic did me good, I fell off the wagon with this too on July 10th...
and last but not least business related:
- for almost a year I had tracked all the tasks I accomplished during the day in my business. Everything I did I recorded either under 'creation', 'action', or 'consumption' and made sure that I spent at least 30% on 'creation' and only 10% on consumption per week. I had started that habit in August 2017 when I noticed that my days were very busy but I did not get a lot done (ever had that experience?). It turned out I spent a lot of time on consumption. Well after a full year of doing this, I fell off the wagon in week 33, the middle of August 2018 and even though I miss doing it, I have not gotten back on the wagon.
It's more important to know how to sustain a habitThis shows (and I am pretty sure I am not the only one in this) that if you stop caring, stop pushing, stop consciously making sure you do the things and habits you want to do, you fall off the wagon.
Take advantage of the energy filled atmosphere
Review your goals you wanted to achieve in 2018 and the habits you wanted to create and recommit to the ones that are still relevant.
Next week is already the last week of September, but we can still harness the energy of new beginnings. I'll share with you how I got back on my wagons and how you can too, so come back here to read about it.
But first, please leave me a comment and tell me what habit-wagon have you fallen off this summer and how you'll plan to get back on?
Thanks for this Connie, very timely. I was in the middle of a 67 day exercise and eating committment recently and fell of the wagon. I reached 27 days and stopped. I’m drawing a line underneath it today and getting back on.
27 days is good Albert, yes get back on the ‘exercise and eating-wagon’, it’s only a failure if we give up 🙂
