If you’re starting to avoid your new habit, dreading it, or feel like quitting, pay attention to these feelings. Try to analyze where the thoughts are coming from and how you’re rationalizing them.
Are you engaging in negative self-talk? Are you coming up with excuses?
If so, these are just defense mechanisms that your brain uses to cope with discomfort. Don’t let these thoughts have power over you! Push back against them with some positive self-talk.
Today’s challenge is to write a list of reasons that you decided to make this change. Start your list by thinking about WHY you wanted to start this change in the first place. You’ll be able to use this list, later on, to refer to and use as a reminder when you’re feeling unmotivated.
Holla if we can help :)
