The 2 Day Rule

I recently came across the 2 day rule, and it is something I am trying to be better at with my habits and routines. The days can look a little different, but don’t miss twice is the mantra.

Yesterday I spent the day on the road.  I was going to get up early and get my workout in, but…I didn’t get that done.  No worries. Adjust, adapt, overcome. 

I had taken Sunday off, so I was determined to not miss for two days in a row due to a new commitment to the “two day rule”, so I got home after 241 miles and five visits with some fantastic athletic administrators and got the workout in.

The idea?  If you are trying to do something, build or continue a habit, don’t miss more than one day in a row.

Be consistent.  Consistency can look different as well, but consistency is a key to forming our routines and habits.

What is it you are trying to do? 
Don’t miss twice and be consistent.  Adjust, adapt, and overcome as needed.

I’m cheering for you.
