Do you ever find yourself striking deals with…yourself?
It’s something we all do at some point in our lives—what’s important, though, is why we do it.
Take your weight loss, for example. Sometimes it’s bad (cue the devil on the shoulder) to bargain. You may rationalize, “OK, I’m out having fun out with my friends tonight, so I’ll splurge on my eating this one time. I’ll just exercise more tomorrow.”
And while it’s true that you may increase your activity the next day, the problem is in the bargaining itself. You may do it again, and again, and again—thus allowing bad habits to creep into your success.
Focus instead on the “good” bargaining you can do; allow that angel on the shoulder to have his say. For example, you can bargain that if you stick to your program all week, you’ll treat yourself to a new spring dress.
Just make sure that the deal you’re making is a smart one; otherwise you may end up with more problems than you bargained for.
