To deter myself from staying up late scrolling through social media or going down a YouTube rabbit hole, I remember the rule: “don’t stay up late for something you wouldn’t get up early for.”
I enjoy the occasional cheat meal, but my rule is: if I “shouldn’t” eat it it’s not coming in my house. When I found myself hitting snooze too many times, I started placing my alarm clock steps away from the bed.
Self-control is over-rated. Simple rules you create (and follow) are more reliable ways to change habits.
