Ep 168- Why Consistency Is So Hard and How To Get Over The Hurdle

I’ve been thinking a lot about consistency lately. One of the things I’m able to do now that I have been in recovery, and now that I have healthy boundaries, is I’m able to be consistent in my self-care, and I trust myself now. I was incapable of doing things consistently before recovery. This week’s episode 168 of the Fragmented to Whole Podcast is about why consistency is so hard and how to get over the hurdle!

In this episode of the Fragmented to Whole Podcast, I’m sharing the importance of consistency and actionable steps you can take right now to get over the hurdle of becoming consistent. If you are trying to accomplish a big task, like getting through to school or being healthy, consistency in small things, like homework and healthy meals, is far more important and more achievable than doing grand gestures. The beginning step is always harder, because it takes a lot of mental energy to get over the inertia of going from nothing to something, and this is why developing good habits is really important. They help you get past that inertia by developing momentum.

Consistency over time gives you momentum of the habit, and it *does* become easier over time. Be sure to tune in to all the episodes to receive tons of practical tips on living a more whole life and to hear even more about the points outlined above.

What is Fragmented to Whole: Life Lessons from 12 Step Recovery?

This is the podcast “Fragmented to Whole: Life Lessons from 12 Step Recovery.” It will help people who want to heal to move from fragmented to whole.

Hi, I’m Barb! I share my experience, strength and hope from 12 step recovery in each episode. They’re all 20 minutes or less. Unlike most recovery podcasts where you hear a person’s whole story, in this one each episode is about a specific topic.

There are many life lessons from 12 step recovery that are applicable to those in and outside of recovery. This podcast brings some of those lessons to the airwaves, including such topics as learning acceptance, recognizing and overcoming victim mentality and establishing healthy boundaries.
