There are two sides of you — there’s the side of you that wants to feel healthier and improve your lifestyle, and the side of you that doesn’t want to put in the work.
🥗The side of you that wants to make healthier food choices, and the side of you that wants pizza and ice cream NOW.
💪🏼 The side of you that wants to get stronger, and the side of you that doesn’t feel like exercising.
😴The side of you that knows you should go to bed early, and the side of you that wants to stay up late and watch Netflix.
🧼The side of you that wants a tidy home and clean laundry, and the side of you that doesn’t feel like doing chores.
🤔There’s a side of you that wants to accomplish your long-term goals and a side of you that will sacrifice long-term gain for momentary comfort and pleasure.
Having these mixed feelings is normal, however it’s helpful to recognize that your impulses, urges and cravings don’t always represent what is in your best interest. What we want in-the-moment does not always reflect what we want MOST.
Do a quick cost/benefit analysis by asking yourself: will this action bring me closer to or further away from my long-term goals?
Am I willing to sacrifice progress for momentary pleasure or comfort?
Allow yourself the opportunity to assess your feelings rather than automatically answer them. Aim to make the decision that is in your best interest. 👏🏼🙌🏼
