Over time, Instant Gratification has become something we have been conditioned to want and to believe we deserve. While we are right about deserving to receive that which we desire, sometimes the instantaneous nature of it does not serve us.
In Social Media terms, many take to Facebook and Twitter and they share their every thought with the entire social media network; thoughts which, are often regretted later. We are so quick to “share” and “post” that we neglect our hardwired delay of just a few moments to stop and think about what we are doing.
While the Social Media ramifications are easy to foresee, choices we make when it comes to food consumption should be treated with the same caution. Cravings are had by all, we get that inescapable yen for something and the thought of that which we desire grows with intensity, until it is almost blinding, because we become fixated on what we want. We do everything we can to get what we want, or at least, substitute for it with other foods rather than the actual food we crave.
If you can get in the practice of saying to yourself, “now, just weight a minute”, you will be consciously and strategically placing a delay in your actions to give yourself some time to process your impulsive thought. By weighting a minute, you have time to go through reasons in your head why you should eat and why you should not. Most of the time, you will choose to not have what you desire because you have talked yourself out of it nearly as fast as you could have talked yourself into it. By talking yourself out of it, you are talking yourself INTO the Ultimate Life that you desire – one full of happiness, health and love.
When we act on impulse, we allow our guts to guide us; no pun intended. But if we can stop for just a moment and think of what will happen next based on our actions, we just might make a different, better choice. Whether you take this advice for weight management or for social media management – it is good advice to take.
Now go “share” this with all of your friends and remember to live ULTIMATELY!
