Every action you make has a consequence. If you’re bored and watch TV when trying to sleep you wont get a good night of sleep. If you’re tired and take a warm shower you’ll become doughy and not as energetic as when you take a cold shower. If you fall for your cravings and eat some candy you’ll get a candy coma and don’t have any energy to be productive.
It’s a vicious circle. One bad decision leads to another due to the consequences.
The good thing is that you can snap out of it by thinking two steps ahead. Think about the consequences and not the instant gratification. By turning off all electronics one hour before going to bed you might get a bit bored but you’ll fall asleep faster and sleep better – giving you more energy the next morning. Thanks to the better sleep you won’t be as cold in the morning and you’ll be happy with a colder shower – making sure you don’t get doughy.
Think about it next time you make a decision. TV and a bad night of sleep Vs a little bored. A warm and cozy shower that makes you doughy Vs a cold shower that makes you energetic. A quick pizza that put you in food coma Vs taking the time to cook a great tasting chicken.
Every action has a consequence – don’t fall for the quick temptation.
