Stay Away Until You’re Ready

Stay Away Until You’re Ready

Don't try to fight your inner battle until you have leveled up. The inner battle you're facing never goes away completely. It just becomes easier when you are prepared.

  • Remove all the junk food out of your house until you’re better equipped to handle it.
  • Drive a different path to work so that you can avoid Burger King and McDonald’s.
  • Take a month off from going out to bars.

Study the pattern of your struggles

Study the pattern of your struggles

Have a plan in place to fight your inner demon. If you are struggling with eating unhealthy foods, identify the triggers that cause you to crave them. Do you eat when you are bored or grumpy?

When you understand why you do certain things, you'll be better equipped to prepare and fight them. For instance, if you eat because you are tired and bored, stay away from the sweets and grab an apple.
