Am I the only one struggling with maintaining my good habits and trying to avoid the bad ones?

Not at all, I struggle with it a lot too! Try to not be too hard on yourself when u fall off the bandwagon. I know it sounds cheesy, but it's the trying again that matters! It's like getting distracted in meditation, every time you come back to your breathing you're rewiring your brain and it gets easier over time. It might be helpful to look at why you stumbled; source of temptation? Sickness? Bad mental health day?

Not at all. It’s hard to maintain the good habits but very rewarding when we do. I procrastinate quite a bit and ignore the sage character who always

I don’t think I am alone in having difficulty with dedication to change.
Slow steps of rightful intent will help continue a steady path.

Not at all. I've been struggling with this for a couple of years now. I find that I can begin good habits and commit to them for only a short period of time before relapsing into my bad ones. Fortunately, we both are self aware in regards to our failure to maintain good habits, which I think is an incredibly important first step towards personal growth.

Eliminating bad habits and replacing them with good ones takes time. It's too much pressure on yourself to try and radically change your lifestyle in days, weeks, or even months.

I definitely think I'm getting better, however. I wish I could progress at a faster rate but the bad habits are burned into my daily life that change has been slow.

So to conclude, you're definitely not alone in this. The fact that you are aware of your situation puts you in a really good spot for growth. I would just encourage you to keep reaching out to others and aim for the small victories. Maybe instead of killing your most rooted bad habits, try developing some smaller good habits in the meantime.

Thanks for sharing, you can do this.

Hey, you are not alone. Sometimes I keep it going for several weeks..and then I have moments of not even one thing done in the schedule… it is done but not by the plan and that's ok cause it takes time to build them in. Also I think it is harder to stop a bad habit than building new ones.

Absolutely not!!! This has been so hard for me, especially when we just had too move. I’m still not back in the swing of things and have started bad habits back up again

I find forgiving myself and getting right back on horse..each moment & day is a new beginning ..the self talk to be less hard on myself..works
Realizing patience, perserverence, what do most of the time is huge..progress not perfection..new habits get easier & more automatic.

Absolutely not. It can feel that way because we often don't share our failures, only successes, but everyone struggles. Anyone who says they've never struggled is just lying, to be honest. I hope this gives you hope and the fire to keep going, because you know that the people you see doing it, also struggled just like you are right now

No you are not alone. I have not finished all my listed goals in their entirety in a month or so. At first I was doing none of them but now I try to at least do one or two items. I try to grow slowly everyday and still attempt small achievements instead of overwhelming myself with a long list.
