Confession time. When I am really stressed or down, I eat fruit loops. With all the colors and sugars, there is probably nothing worse I could binge on.
The good thing is that I can’t eat them if they aren’t in the house and they are rarely in the house.
I am the only one who will buy them so the only way they wind up in a bowl on my table is if I make multiple bad choices.
In the store, I only have one decision to make at a single point in time – do I buy the cereal today?
If I don’t buy it, I have no other decisions to make until the next time I am in the store.
If I do buy the fruit loops, I introduce a large number of choices into my life, all around trying to avoid eating something that is bad for me.
Communications are the same way. If you allow them to come into your awareness, you will have to constantly decide when to engage with them.
Turning off your notifications is like leaving the cereal on the shelf at the store.
Do good and be well,
