Although the best advice for a happy life is to “live in the NOW,” that doesn’t always apply.
When the urge to engage in an unhealthy habit raises its head, take a deep breath and think about how you’ll feel 10 minutes from now. Ask yourself, “Will this action make me feel better and stronger – or will I regret my decision?”
Make your decision based on the answer to that question.
If you’re not sure what is the correct answer, wait 10 minutes to find out. That works too.
