Eradicate the behaviour of consuming the wrong foods or too much of them and we have healthy weight loss. It’s that simple
Habits have formed and time has been filled. We’re going to break old habits, free up time and use this to build new habits to build a new you
Habits to Break
- Spending time inefficiently
- Not making time to exercise
Time is a currency that is best spent wisely
Spending time inefficiently is summarised by two rules; Parkinson’s law and the 80:20 rule.
Parkinson’s Law – The task will take the time you allot it
I.e. have you ever taken all day to do one thing, and an hour when pushed to complete multiple tasks
The 80 : 20 Rule – 20% of your effort produces 80% of results
This is very applicable to business and economics but for this is also very applicable to your lifestyle satiety. For example these are the habits of the average person in the UK
SOLUTION: Breaking Habits and Building New Ones
Optimise the time you spend on a task and free up time to prepare your diet and exercise.
Firstly, have a timer handy. Use an app or your phone or a programme on your computer and allocate a certain amount of time to your task. The pressure to finish on time will mean you will complete the task more effectively
The 80:20 Rule
20% of our daily activities produces 80% of our satisfaction and we can take advantage of this. Try the tips below
- Only watch catch up TV (you don’t need the adverts and you don’t need to watch those shows you don’t really care about)
- Commit to checking Facebook twice per day. Nothing much will change and you’ll save loads of time. Gossip is completely overrated anyway
- Question the value of the information you’re searching for. Time is your greatest commodity so what are you spending it on? Finding out about current affairs and shopping for needed items? Great! Facebook, celebrity gossip and looking at clothes you know you won’t buy? Stop right there!
