Life Hack #24: Temptation Bundling

Have you ever struggled to find the motivation to achieve one of your goals? Have you ever felt guilty about taking the time to indulge in something you enjoy but don’t really have time for or that seems frivolous?

Well you can solve both problems at once by using temptation bundling. We are more likely to find motivation to achieve our goals when we can pair it with something that we like.

Try exercising to your favorite playlist or podcast, phone a friend while you’re folding laundry, or reward yourself with a favorite treat after accomplishing a challenging working task. To do this, consider pairing your “have to” task to your “want to” rewards.

Using temptation bundling can be a simple and powerful way to improve our motivation – at home, at work, and with health benefits.
