I am pretty obsessive about to do lists. But I have been having problems being motivated to do much activism type stuff lately. One thing that helps me out of my rut is being accountable to other people and asking for support.]]>
I think the most important thing about setting goals is not totally beating yourself up on the days when you fall off the wagon. I find that the more I beat myself up about NOT doing what I’m trying to, I just end up feeling bad – not motivated to do better Acknowledging room for improvement is one thing, but totally getting down on yourself is another. Negative self talk will never help anything, so keep it positive, and know that tomorrow is another opportunity to hold yourself accountable for creating the life you want. Trust me, I’ll be trying hard to do this too!!!]]>
Many of my lazy habits are the same as yours. Actually, I am in pajamas right now too, despite the fact that I woke up at 6AM ( my accountancy homework is to blame. It NEVER ends T_T); I have not did a green smoothie for myself for one month; I sleep 4 or 5 hours and I never plan my meals (which means that when I have no time or exams I subsist on cookies, breakfast cereals and dark chocolate>.<). At least I drink enough water, he he.
Is not easy to get back on track, but sometimes achieving one of the goals inspires you to go on. For example, when I oblige myself to go running, even if I don't have time (because I never had it, and I would never go running otherwise) I feel good. If I feel good, I don't crave sweets or food I know I shouldn't eat. If I follow a balanced diet and exercise, I feel more energetic and exercise more. You just need a little push]]>
