Make the Most of an Impulse

Released Friday, 7th August 2020
Good episode? Give it some love!
In this episode, we talk about impulse control and how giving in to unplanned urges can get in the way of achieving lasting change. Not only that, but it can rob us of the pleasure of anticipating and maximizing an indulgence.
Main takeaways:
  • It’s not about deprivation. We are not suggesting that we live without pleasure.  In fact, we are suggesting the opposite!
  • Impulse indulgences are usually much less pleasurable than the ones we would plan and choose.
  • Remember the minimum effective dose. You don’t have to blow the entire afternoon off of work, eat the entire pie, drink the whole bottle, purchase everything in your Amazon shopping cart in order to not feel deprived.
