- Floss Everyday
- Go to bed on time
- Drink Water
- Stretch in the morning
Achieving this daily will help you build more willpower for bigger goals. Just like a muscle you can hurt your willpower by overdoing it. Just like you cannot lift too much without working your way up, setting too high a standard for yourself usually results in failure, guilt, and a binge. This is why food-drama diets fail. These diets have complicated regimens, they are often too restrictive, and they expect absolute perfection on day one.
Don't Get Depleted
- Get enough sleep
- Eat healthy foods to prevent you from getting too hungry.
- Brush and floss, and keep Listerine strips or travel sized bottle handy. Food is less tempting with a very clean mouth.
- Move the gift basket out of sight.
- Shop with cash and leave your debit card and credit card at home. Willpower is willpower, using it for dieting and controlling spending at the same time can ruin both efforts.
