WAY TO WELLNESS #95
If you are trying to resist an addictive temptation or change a bad habit, a good initial step is to remove the object of your desire or at least make it difficult to get to. For example, if you are trying to stop drinking caffeine, remove caffeine products from your refrigerator and cupboards. If you are trying to get better sleep and reduce screen time at bedtime, leave your electronic devices outside of your bedroom and close the door. It is much easier to resist temptation when it is not dangling in front of you like the proverbial carrot. Remember the brain is all about what is happening right now. If the object of your desire is not in your cupboard, the brain will have an easier time moving on to something else.
