Lately I’ve realised the importance of taking one day at time when it comes to my personal life.
I am incredibly self critical and can beat myself up really bad when I screw up or even just don’t do things perfect – this can become a vicious circle as I go on a trail of self destruct because of how disappointed I am in myself.
For example, if I get tempted to eat some junk food, I will become immediately frustrated with my lack of will power and this can often allow it to spiral into a cycle of eating poorly for days, or even weeks.
Likewise, a skipped gym session can sometimes turn into weeks or months of inactivity.
The key is letting go of the past. No matter how things went yesterday, or last week, or last month, or last year – you have the power to change the trend when you wake up to start your day.
You have the opportunity to start with a blank canvas and have an awesome day.
And then you can build on that the following day – and the next day – and so on.
Set aside half an hour to plan out an awesome day. Keep it simple – just 3 or 4 things that will make your day pretty awesome. And then do that.
Likewise if you screw up in the morning, you can still have a great afternoon, it doesn’t mean you have to write off the whole day. Re-group and plan out an awesome afternoon. And then do that.
What are you going to do with tomorrows bank holiday?
