The most common thing people struggle with is staying consistent towards their goals.
There a many reason's for this such as:
Something I see often and quite frankly do myself is finding it hard to stay consistent with nutrition. People then constantly try seek out a new diet, a new way of eating thinking this will fix it (which is great to try new things to see if this fits in your lifestyle) but this tends to have the same result, which leaves you feeling like a failure and that you just can't seem to get it right.
The way I coach my clients is from a non-judgmental, compassionate place, which I try have my clients practice. The hardest part for them is that they think if I am not beating myself up about it then I won't change. But really beating themselves up keeps them in that same cycle.
Learning to be less judgmental and more compassionate with yourself helps you actually address problems, rather than thinking you are a failure, you suck and you can't do it. This helps you take ownership on the things that you can control and give's you back the power.
If you have people around you who are not on the same path as you then this can affect consistency, by setting boundaries with yourself and those around you, and explaining how important this is to you right now will help bring in a supportive environment.
Learn to sit with uncomfortable emotion's. In this day and age we want things now, so when we feel a tough emotion we can easily turn to a quick fix to avoid this, we also were never taught this. Tune into yourself and check in what you need right now. If it is food then great make that choice, if there is something else you know that will make you feel better that is not food then try that to.
Remind yourself, you get to choose, these are all choices you can make and these are things you have control over.
You can do anything you set your mind to, as you will see in your work ethic in your job, in the way you show up for your family, in the way you show up for friends.
