If you struggle to resist any junky treats, here are three valuable lessons that many clients report learning this time of year:
- Lesson 1: The loss (of a favorite treat) is temporary
Giving up a favorite junky food (for Lent or any time) is hard….but only for a while. Most people stop craving it after a few weeks. They no longer think about it, pine for it or even want it.
But then, after Lent, they eat the old treat again and…
- Lesson 2: The infatuation comes back shockingly fast
Upon trying the treat again, many people don’t even enjoy the first few bites. The food seems over-flavored and over-processed. But habit, curiosity, or a quest for that old “hit” make them finish the treat and before they know it, they are hooked anew.
- Lesson 3: Next time, don’t go back!
When you work hard to give up a junky food, and reach that wonderful place of no longer wanting it, don’t get curious about trying it again! Instead, reap the rewards of living free from junk-food-want.
Have a good week!
