Does this thought ever come up that can sabotage your goals?
I don’t have time…
…exercise, journal, food shop, prep, pack or anything else you need to do?
If so, reaffirm your commitment to your goals and take action!
If I get that thought, I simplify, streamline…but don’t give into ‘I don’t have time.’
It’s tempting to give into it…
…but, it’s self sabotage. It’s not true.
A few tips to use when you get the thought, ‘I don’t have time.” Here you go:
– Do the action imperfectly (work out for 5 or 10 minutes to keep the habit going, instead of not working out)
– Do the action faster (prep, food shop or pack faster, for example…make it a game, and see how quickly you can get the action done)
– Take the first action step in the process to get the ball rolling (do the first set or rep in a strength exercise, for example)
– Recognize that it’s a form of self sabatoge and ignore the thought. Figure out a way to do the action anyway. Think strategically, not all or nothing.
There is always a way to keep the habit going.
There you go and drop me a comment if you can relate 🙂
