Think about the most embarrassing things you’ve ever done.

The things that made you wish the world would open up and swallow you.
How absolutely mortified you felt at the time.
In trying to help, someone may have said “You’ll laugh about this one day”.
At the time you couldn’t imagine it.
I know I couldn’t when I’ve done some of the many hugely embarrassing thing I’ve done over the years.
But, years later, when you look back, you often do, don’t you?
Or at least, you’re no where near as bothered by it.
We’ve mentioned before that the further ‘removed’ we are from things………
The less our hot, emotive system kicks in………
And the more our cool, sensible, relaxed systems are at work.
That distance can be in time.
In space.
In person.
Imagine someone at work is offering you a slice of cake.
Or someone’s suggesting that it’s

wine o clock.

Now imagine that you get to decide if someone you don’t know, who wants to lose weight and get fit, should have that cake and wine.
In Australia.
A week next Thursday.
A very different feeling to that decision, no?
The further we can ‘distance’ ourselves from our decisions, the easier it gets.
Planning ahead with meals not only saves time and effort.
But it’s much easier to make the choices you know will help you get what you want.
Doing a online shop on a Sunday night and deciding what you’ll have for lunch on Thursday………
Feels very different to the Thursday at 12pm decision between a Starbucks panini and muffin and going to Tesco Express for some salad, meat and a bottle of water.
Doesn’t it?
Making extra when cooking on a Friday night and putting it in the freezer for next Wednesday’s tea………
Feels very different to the choice between a take out and popping to CostCutter for some fresh ingredients to cook from scratch when you leave work on the Wednesday.
Getting someone else to do your food shopping for you, while you do theirs means you’re both much more likely to make better choices.
Making the decision to commit to taking the first step to sorting your health / fitness / weight is much easier clicking this link two weeks out than deciding on the day –> 😉
You get the idea.
Make your decisions ‘further away’ from the point they need to be made………
And they become much easier to make in a way that will get you where you want to get to.
Much love,
