In life, there are things we should do, things we need to do and things we want to do.
You and me, we know, it’s always the things that we want to do they have priority over things we should or need to do.
So that we have situations where we do the important things at the last minute and often with enormous stress.
But what’s the temptation pack
Katy Milkman of the University of Pennsylvania conducted a study on this concept . Here the study’s subject :
Participants were randomly assigned to two groups. The first group (full) has access to a gym with the option of listening audiobooks. The second group (intermediate) has access to a gym with a limited time for listening audiobooks.
51% of participants in the first group (full) and 29% of participants of the second group (intermediate) went to the gym more frequently.
It’s cool as an idea to be more consistent in his training program. Now we can adapt this concept for other things :
Do you like a TV show or a youtuber ? Take your laptop or your smartphone and watch it during your cardio (treadmill / elliptical)
Do you like your video game on your smartphone ? Play during your rest time between sets.
Do you like listening audiobooks or podcasts ? Listen to it while you clean your house, doing the laundry or ironing. This can be a task not very motivating as cook healthy meals.
Do you understand the pack temptation’s concept, it’s cool. Do things we should and we need to do by combining an element that we find cool. Tasks we find boring become less boring !
