Slips, that are mistakes or imperfections in our food plan, can quickly turn into slides before we even realize it. To prevent an unideal situation from getting worse, keep these tips about slips in mind:
How do you recover from a slip?
Okay, so a slip happened. Don’t fear- there are a lot of strategies to help you get back to your goals. Here are a few:
Be kind to yourself. A slip can cause negative self criticism, and this mindset doesn’t always inspire someone to return to abstinence. Replace this criticism with understanding and kindness. Self compassion can motivate you to stay on track with your goals.
Don’t rewind. Slipping off plan has a tendency to cause people to become even more strict with themselves in an attempt to “undo” any of the perceived damage they caused when sliding with their food plan. Except, there is nothing to undo or compensate for. There is only standing up and moving forward.
Seek support. Reach out to your power circle, those who support you, and those will help to pick you back up. Find a therapist or support group of people who are experiencing the same struggles that you are.
