It’s so hard but I have a token move that picks me up. It starts with doing one nice healthy positive thing for myself and then the rest follows
- Does writing your to do list provide you a positive or mental framing of the day, i.e. is it overwhelming or reassuring of your tasks and your ability to complete them?
- How can I increase my self-discipline so I can complete my daily tasks?
- What do you use for your to-do list?
- How often do you check your list?
- What do you do when you just dont feel like it? Depression or procrastination or social anxiety can be powerful when it comes to our to-do lists
I pause to recognize the values I have and that they fundamentally have not change. I have slipped up but I am striving for the same goals. I look at the examples I have around me of people who have started good habits later in life. I recognize that their life has been improved by the good habits. I use these excellent examples as encouragement to restart the good habits. If the rut is especially bad or long I sit with a notebook and go through the same routine but writing down my values, reasons I have not adhered to them, and encouraging reasons to start again.
I prepare everything the last night, I have always a list to do and I really like to do all of them and see the check mark. It’s really motivator. And didn’t eat same things everyday, I’m vegan and I eat someday a banana and apple, some days I eat a berry smoothie or an oatmeal that I’ve prepared it from last night. It’s completely depends on yours.
This has been one of my biggest challenges in forming new habits. I listened to a recording of a talk someone gave years ago, and she talked about bringing this problem to a very close friend. Her friend responded: “Ah, yes, I used to struggle with that myself. Then I learned not to beat myself up, even one little bit, when it happened, and to tell myself: ‘Simply resume.’” I’m not sure why but this has totally worked for me. Whenever I lapse and don’t do the new habit, I just say to myself, “It’s okay. Simply resume.” And then I do the habit that day, and I’m always right back on track. Hope this helps!
Look forward and think of the progress that you have made and the good that can come along as you go. We are human and we are not perfect. You will probably fail for a moment but you will keep going and get better at each step.
I think no one is perfect all the time and that is ok. I remind myself the reasons I want to make the change and consider it a worthy habit or behavior. If I believe it is in fact worthy I recommit to the change. I accept there will be times I eat junk food or spend a week where I’m too busy or unmotivated to exercise. The problem more to me is if the unhealthy behaviors become the regular ongoing every day habits which I guess is the rut. That’s where some outside help/advice/instruction/extra motivation and accountability are really helpful. This app for example.

I’m also struggling with this question. Life derails my focus and I slump into old habits. Awareness and Journalling helps.
I make a new plan to put water by my bed at night, set my alarm and ly my clothes out to get to the gym early in the morning, and I buy a snack pack of fresh veggies and ranch dressing at the gas station convenience store. Next I plan my next fasting day which gives me a boost of mental and physical clarity. And I make a date with a good friend. Tomorrow is always a new day to make a fresh start.
- If you don’t complete your to dos, do you carry them over to the next day?
- Do you set deadlines on your to do list? When I see something is over due (for a self-imposed deadline) sometimes it makes me procrastinate even more.
- How i can do not runaway from my tasks and scary thing that i have to do??
- How can I record my accomplishment for these to do list?
- How do you not get overwhelmed by your todo list?
- Do you write your todo list at night for the next day or in the morning?
- How do you write to do lists every day and do those things
- How do you write a you’re to. Do list
- How does one prevent burn out from writing a todo list everyday? I always start out strong then dwindle to weekly lists then will just forget.
- How do you stay consistent with your to do list to make sure you’re progressing forward and achieving your goals daily?
