Do you feel it, you know these days when you’re running too much because you’re juggling so many balls?
You wanted to do this, to do that and your precious plans are out of the window because of an emergency?
And you feel your balance shifting dangerously to your panic zone, you start to be on edge and it’s like, more you running, more it’s like you spinning your wheels right?
TRUTH TALK: GET OFF TRACK IS HUMAN
Brand-spanking-news: you know that you just enter into the Stress department.
You know that this is not a good song but you cannot prevent it, it’s like being in the train running at light speed aka you don’t see how to slow down the pace.
TRUTH BOMB: losing your balance is normal. daily, weekly, monthly.
Get off track is human.
Our mind is wired to protect us at any cost, don’t be surprised if you set up new goals, and these ones slip under your radar a few weeks later, your mind loves what is familiar, so everything new, your mind will work to keep it away from your attention aka not enter into your life.
How to get back on track/ How to bounce back?
WISDOM BOMB: The challenge is to get back on the wagon fast.
Because let’s be honest: being stressed is eating our appetite to bounce back.
You feel pulled in so many directions that you don’t even remember what you did yesterday.
Trust me, you’re not alone.
When my responsibilities started to pile up because of being a wife and a working mum, I was doing the things so fast that I didn’t have a recollection of when I did them before, crazy right? yes, it was.
HOW TO CRACK THE CODE OF RESILIENCE
But now, I figured out how to crack the code of resilience.
The key is to stick to your routine, morning or evening.
The Why of having a routine
Because when you’re off-balance, you need to stay attached to what you know, what is reassuring for you.
To do that, you need to partner with your mind.
To recharge your mental energy, following the rules of the mind is pure gold.
Your mind loves:
1 - repetition
2 - what is familiar
3 - practice
With this in mind, a routine is going to help you to stay grounded, centred and re-calibrate.
The benefits of having a routine
Going back to your routine, your QG gives you a sense of control:
it’s re-creating the structure of a safe environment created by you and for you
it’s resting, reflecting in a peaceful environment
it’s making your goals attainable - if a habit is part of your morning routine to reach a goal, stick to your routine will help you to get closer to your goal.
So you may be tempted to get on the resolution wagon and believe that this time, yes, you’ll stick to your new, healthy habit.
Well, the reality is, if you want to stick to it, you have to integrate this habit into your routine.
Not next week or in 2 days, but now.
To feel good and tick off this thing on your to-do list.
It feels so good to do that, right?

With love, joy and trust
