We adults think it’s a drag to change ourselves, so we stay stuck in the same old muck.
What are we missing here? We’re missing the reward, silly. What? We adults don’t need rewards! Oh yes we do!
If you decide not to buy that trinket because you’re on a budget, put the cash away and build on it. If you save $50 because of your cleverness, put 50 bucks or whatever you can afford into extra savings as a “Thanks, nice job!” gift to yourself.
Remember to take teeny tiny baby steps to avoid feeling guilty or disheartened when you slip back. If you’re facing a big change, plan it out and plug in those rewards which may be as simple as watching your favorite show without doing something else.
Gifts of time are powerful for adults. Go for it!
