When creating a new habit, you WILL miss a day here and there. It’s unavoidable.
Life happens, you get ill, something comes up. Make your peace with it.
Missing a day doesn’t matter. How you react to it does.
Do you simply give up and start from scratch again weeks later?
Or do you let go of this “day off” and keep moving towards your goal?
The key is to let go of your “all or nothing” mentality. The idea that since you fucked up once, you might as well give up.
A rule that works well for a lot of people is: never miss twice.
Be okay with the idea that things will go wrong sometimes, but be disciplined enough to not let this become your new habit.
