If you have fallen off the healthy lifestyle wagon, do not despair or feel guilty. This happens to everyone. Regain your focus, learn from the experience, and start a new day.
- Figure out what caused the relapse and learn your triggers
- Reinforce new behaviors with small rewards
- Find ways to renew your motivation
- Do not deprive yourself completely of anything because that will cause you to want that dessert, bag of chips, etc. even more
TIP: When you go on family vacations, business trips, or around the holidays, come up with a plan to help you with some of the risks involved and try to find alternative healthy ways to deal with each risk.
