this can disrupt their sense of momentum in habit and routine .
Getting motivated and staying motivated can be tough, especially when facing the discouragement of missing a day.
Deliberately putting in extra time and effort towards getting my motivation fired back up is usually the greater priority for me at that point.
Part of that is to keep mentally focused on imagining the end result of reaching my goal,
rather than indulging the distressing distraction of my setback. The aim is to use this to speed up, (not slow down in wishing, but not doing).
I find that it’s right to keep getting back up and trying again, even when it might feel as though I’ve failed completely.
If your question is more about losing physical progress and wanting the most effective way to make up for that?
Physical deconditioning –
where the body loses muscle and becomes weaker – takes more than a single day.
Eventually , enough skipped days would start to be a drag.
Yet – Even then, it really is just a matter of getting started again and sticking with it.
The body eventually responds and catches back up.
