In my previous post outlining resolutions for 2020, I caught myself proudly ‘cheating’.
Of no surprise, I detoured from finishing the post to tracking down this item from the British Broadcasting Corporation.
A few key points:
- Cheat days, also called ‘structured flexibility’, can help us stay motivated.
- By reducing the guilt over breaking the streak, cheating can help us keep focused on the long-term goal.
If this works for you, make 2020, the Year of the Cheat.
Let me know if you have other successful cheats.
Happy New Year
