Increase Your Willpower With Temptation Bundling
Friday Fix: Episode 152
We all have obligations that we feel compelled to fulfil while not wanting to. The majority of us don’t enjoy completing certain tasks, despite the fact that we know they are necessary. Examples include working out, cleaning the house, and paying the bills.
It might be challenging to keep going on a task you don’t feel like performing or to force yourself to do something boring.
We can blame ourselves for giving up when we avoid doing something frequently enough, like cleaning the house, or when we give up on our goals, like stopping at the gym.
However, you don’t have to use willpower to get through difficult activities. Instead, there are methods you might employ to improve the unpleasantness of an experience. Then, finishing it doesn’t seem like such a terrible thing.
Bundling temptation has a role in this. It has been discovered that using this method, people may do those unpleasant jobs more frequently.
In this episode, I’ll describe temptation bundling, how it functions, and some examples of how clients in my counselling practise have utilised it to improve their lives Increase Your Willpower With Temptation Bundling.
