Setbacks happen, and there is no need to stress about them over and over again!
Personal barriers can trigger setbacks and distract you from your motive, whether it is about maintaining a healthy life, following a diet or going to the gym. For instance, an injury can put a stop to your daily workouts, a family gathering can force you to overindulge, or an emotionally stressed moment can upset your healthy eating habits.
Either you can keep stressing over your intruded diet plan, or you can learn from the setbacks and turn it into motivation.
Want a piece of advice? Go with the second option.
Here are 12 recovery techniques to get you back on track.
- Forgive yourself for going down the road of pessimism;
- Set new goals;
- Contact a nutritionist and ask them to make a new diet plan for you. This time a little easier than the last;
- Focus on your nutritional health rather than weighing yourself over and over again;
- Avoid stress at all costs. Keep yourself away from negative people and thoughts. Perform relaxation therapies like yoga for peace of your mind;
- Get creative with exercise. Play different sports, compete on the run with your friend, plan a family hike, or you can go swimming;
- Extract your frustration through exercise – just sweat it off;
- Whenever you’re feeling down, reach the social support of your friends and family. Spend quality time with them;
- Hire a personal workout trainer to get tailored services and attention;
- Go slow, don’t take big steps at the start! Taking too much on can be overwhelming and can throw you off to your old humdrum habits;
- Bare minimum. If you can’t go on a full-on diet and exercise routine, start small. Start by skipping bad sugary drinks and processed foods or adding a fruit or vegetable to your plate;
- Set up a music player and make exercising fun. Pause your exercise for a while and dance wildly to your favourite songs because hey…! No one’s watching.
