What is STOPPING us from being happy?
From getting the body we want?
OUR NEED TO BE HAPPY
But an immediate need
The quick fix
We are programmed to constantly be seeking things that make us happy
As QUICKLY as possible
The problem is that these things don’t tend to be things that make us happy long term
When was the last time you made a quick impulsive decision?
I want that glass of wine
Those biscuits that are just too tempting
The crash diet where you lost 5lbs in a week
Or even, “ I’m not that interested in this guy, but hey, its attention!”
How did they end up?
This is not helped by the fact that our need for a quick fix is just getting worse- we are so used to having everything at our finger tips, that our tolerance for playing the long game is at an all time low.
We feel down
We can buy a new dress in two clicks
Order a takeaway from deliveroo
Post a selfie on Instagram for some likes
A few matches on bumble
We hate that full length photo our friend took of us, but we can take a selfie and filter the shit out of it
Or the scales have stayed the same this week- but we know that chocolate bar will make us happy
It might not be what you want to do at the time
We have to work hard to resist this
Remember the minimal benefits the quick fix gets us
Have that support
It is essential I keep my clients completely focused on the goals they want, I repeatedly ask them why they are important to them.
And as the weight falls of, how they USED to feel
We set the long term goal, but we have the short term ones set , so that they get their dose of gratification!..
.. a dose that doesn’t ruin progress!
