But, “ Start over” doesn’t mean that throw out everything you have accomplished in the previous days or even in the previous months.
In my personal anecdotal experience, I have found it helpful to treat the Fabulous App as a challenge to myself and not a competition with others. I want to succeed at developing and sticking to my my habits, rituals, routines, but if fall off track, I haven’t failed- I just need to try again. The key is to recognize that I fell off track and then change or adjust and then try again. It is a lifelong process. It helps sometimes to “restart” because I may decide to change and make my goals more simple and it feels good to make small improvements and build upon them.
I have a "make change carefully" outlook and am far less judgemental than when younger. Yet I started Fabuloius as I realized I needed SOME level of routine to advance and stay on or near track.
I do not do 100% every day of the habits I've put into Fabulous app. Often I do many and then don't input daily. I started out with 2 over a year ago. Added a few as felt need and am now up to about a dozen. If I miss a few I don't stress. If I miss many a few days then when I pick app back up (I currently have alarms turned off), I do what I can. I do not force myself to "do it all immediately."
A related issue I do have is that I dropped the type of meditation that I was doing, and is on my habits, yet havn't found a regular replacement, and I almost never formally exercise although also in my habits list.
I am recently finding renewed motivation and daily practices for all (still slowly becoming clearer) goals & supporting habits from classic authors like Brian Tracy and Glenn Bland. So I anticipate and expect to restart these and other good habits with gusto. Notice the point about clarifying goals. I am already seeing that choosing, committing to, clarifying, making goals VIVID in my mind and heart; provide most of the motivation needed to choose and do the supporting beneficial habits.
The newest habit I just added was "reviewing and re-reading and visualizing my purposeful goals" daily.
That is called an experience. Use it to figure out the "Why?" Why did I not work out? Why did I eat that "whatever"? What is really causing me to go off course. What is troubling you? Make ammends, forgive esp yourself, journal all that comes to mind – Then Carry On with the plan.

- I’m a meditation beginner and I found my mind was always distracted by some memories inside my brain whenever I try to focus on my breath’s inhales and exhales. I know it needs time to practice. However, I want to know if there are some meditation skills I missed or something I was doing incorrectly?
