The time has come. The second half of the year has begun. If you’ve been to the gym lately you may have noticed empty locker rooms and less bodies huddle together near weight machines. Your social media timelines are less flooded with posts claiming, “Girl this is my year”. Maybe the things you have planned for yourself have slowly begun to look like wishful thinking. I’m here to encourage you to not give up. The mid-year slump hits all of us. Here are some tips on how to get back into the game.

Regain Focus 

It is very important to remember why you set your goals. Hopefully, you wrote those goals down at the beginning of the year. Go back and read those goals out loud to yourself. Do those goals still entice you? If not, think back to how you felt when you initially wrote them down. If it still makes you get in your feelings a lil’ bit, then maybe it’s something you still need to work on. There are plenty of distractions in our day-to-day lives but we can’t allow those distractions become more important than bettering ourselves.

If you can dream it, you can do it. – Walt Disney 

Scrap the Plans 

Okay, maybe you tried as hard as you could to accomplish your goals earlier in the year but things didn’t pan out. I completely understand. It is so easy to become discouraged when we don’t see immediate results. Were you trying to get into shape, but not seeing a difference in the mirror? Were you trying to save money, but pricey roadblocks kept getting in the way? It is perfectly fine to feel defeated but don’t accept defeat. Maybe the plan of action you set in place was not the best one for you. It may have worked for your cousin, your coworker, or your best friend but it’s not the plan for you.

Step back and make a new plan of action. 

We may encounter many defeats but we must not be defeated. – Maya Angelou 

Life is full of twists and turns. Those twists and turns can discourage us from making accomplishments. No matter the bad days, unforeseen circumstances, and/or slow progress don’t quit on your goals. Take the time to refocus on the plans you have for yourself. Also, if you need to go back to the drawing board and scrap your old plans then do it! It’s not too late to make 2017 your year girl!
