I think we fool ourselves with this too often: just one more bite, just one more cookie, just one more cuppa coffee.
How can we reformulate?
Awareness needs to come first. Where am I using this phrase?
Decide if this is supporting your health goals. No? Then shorten the phrase to "just one".
- Just one snooze
- Just one handful of almonds
- Just one bite of ice-cream
Some folks do well with moderation - so one cookie or one snooze helps them to stay on track in the long run because they do not feel deprived.
Others do best with abstinence; just one will lead to just one more and just one more. If you feel that may help you best, "not now" may be the best phrase for you.
- Just one snooze? Not this morning
- Just one chip? Not today
Have a great morning!
