Remember: the most important practice is just getting back on the wagon.

I’d like to be able to say that I engage in each one of these things every single day. And although I could say it, alas, it would not be the truth.
It’s nigh impossible to do everything I’d like, every single day, but I still aim to do at least a good chunk of them. And I even fail at that sometimes.
The key in maintaining optimal happiness and quality of life, though, is not 100% consistency, but rather self-compassion when I stumble. And most important, getting back on the wagon.
Falling off does not mean you’re a failure, it just means it’s time to take notice:
- Look at why you fell off
- Notice how it feels when you’re off track
- Remind yourself how it feels when you’re on track
And then just get right back on the wagon and take a fresh start. No whippings, no guilt.
