When you’re just starting out with a daily exercise routine, don’t beat yourself up if you miss a day (or two, or three). A lot of people have a tendency to judge themselves harshly when they feel that they’ve fallen short of reaching their goals. This leads to a feeling of failure, making it more likely that you’ll just give up altogether. Do the best you can and don’t worry if you miss days here or there.
