Tell yourself you’ll treat yo’ self — sometime later

January 31, 2012 at 9:39 AM 2 comments

You’ve sworn off candy, or carbs or coffee (whatever the forbidden item may be).

Just tell yourself you’ll have some “later”, time TBD — and you’ll be less likely to binge on it. Being vague about when you’ll have some makes it less likely you’ll overindulge than if you were to say to yourself “I’ll have some with my lunch,” according to research presented at the annual meeting of the Society for Personality and Social Psychology.

Except, of course, on Treat Yo Self day, then indulge all you like, whenever you like :)
