I’m not very compliant when it comes to things I SHOULD do.
Things like taking ALL of my vitamins everyday.
Or, cutting back on carbs to reduce the chances of full-fledged diabetes and dementia (not to mention belly fat) or sleeping with my night-guard to stop grinding my teeth and getting middle of the night headaches.
Just “knowing” these things are good for me have never been enough of a reason to do them.
A part of me screams, “I don’t want to” and “you can’t make me.”
BUT……eventually, I get a good enough reason to become compliant.
I now take my vitamins (in spite of hating to swallow so many pills) because my new story is that “I do it for Brian” so he can have a healthy wife on the planet.
