Why Habits and Why Do We Slip Up?
According to Psychology Today, routines can positively impact your mental health by decreasing stress and helping your sleep cycle. Healthy habits can bring down your cortisone levels and lift up your spirits. With so many things outside of your control, one thing that is solely yours is your daily routine. That being said, it is so easy to slip up and feel off balance. Once you forgo your morning skincare routine or weekly yoga class once, it feels more and more difficult to get back on track. You start justifying why you can’t, don’t have time for, or just don’t want to get back to your healthy lifestyle.
How to Get Back Up
When you lose your balance, take a deep breath and slowly make your way back. Remember, habits and routines can take time! It might take time to get back to balance. Check out a few actionable strategies below when you are trying to find balance after slipping up.
The power of a schedule of some sort cannot be overstated. Give your habits space and time within your life. Put it in your Calendar! Getting specific gives you firm guidelines on how to get back on track whenever you slip up. Keeping a schedule will also help you hold yourself accountable. It’s a lot harder to make excuses when it’s written somewhere.
In action: Physically get a planner or calendar and write in blocked-out time for your health habit. Trying to do yoga three times a week? Schedule it so you are prepared and know that it is feasible.
First of all, take a deep breath! It’s tempting to try to do it all quickly to get back on track but this is often counterproductive. Falling out of your healthy habits or routine does not need to lead to a full-on spiral (we know it happens). Try not to think or worry about the future when you are working on getting back on track. Start small and focus on what you can do today.
In action: Trying to get back to your 30 minute daily meditations? Do five minutes of meditation and slowly increase the number. Fell off your five articles a week routine? Write one article today. You got this.

Yep, we are talking about self-love again. It permeates through every facet of caring for your health! If you lose your balance and can’t seem to get back on track, be gentle with yourself. Mastering positive self-talk can lead to more confidence, motivation, and self-love, leading you back to your routines with gentle kindness.
