One of my big problems with losing weight is will power, I use a small plate but go back for seconds, this sort of thing. Then i came across the below article and it made great sense to me i wanted to share with you all.
Did you know you can devise a plan to overcome a ‘lack of willpower” in regards to your exercise, diet and wellbeing?
Even though we rightly know the best choices and actions that lead to a healthier lifestyle, quite often when it comes to the crunch our willpower takes charge and before you know it there goes another day and another 3pm chocolate bar.
So, what’s up with that and why do we so easily do something when we know it’s not the best option ..better still how do we go about fixing it?
There have been many studies published lately that prove this crazy phenoma and it’s called decision fatigue (yes there is an actual science behind it).
What all this means is that from the moment we wake we’re bombarded with decisions that need to be made. Simple things such as shall I put petrol in the car now or later, what’s for dinner, what exercise shall I do today … all take their toll and we’re left with a fading willpower by the end of the day and hence we fall back onto bad habits or whatever is the easiest option (like not lacing up your joggers!).
You might feel this after a busy day, when there has been lots going on and everyone wants a bit of you .. even though you’ve not done anything physical you’re still feeling drained.
But, the good news is that you can take this head on and devise a plan to overcome this ‘lack of willpower” in regards to your exercise, diet and wellbeing
