Whether it’s a trip around the world, a road trip to the next state over, or a trip to the grocery store, having a successful trip is all in the planning. As much as we tend to do it, we really cannot rely on our future selves. Future Self tends to let us down, even if, to Present Self, Future Self is perfect and full of promise. Let’s make things easier for Future Self.
Plan out your meals for the week, write down what you need, and then head to the grocery store with that list. Don’t believe that Future Self won’t make impulse purchases without a list to follow. Stick to the list. Don’t count on Future Self not eating that entire bag of Doritos in one sitting. Just don’t buy them in the first place. Help your Future Self live up to being the best they can be by making the healthy decisions for them in the present.
What other decisions can you make now to make it easier for your Future Self to choose the healthier road?
