Choose what’s best, not what’s next!

I’ve always coached about the importance of meal planning and meal prepping. It saves you time, money and calories. Since becoming a life coach and doing a lot of studying, it’s clear there’s even more reason for it. When we make a plan we make a lot of pre-decisions. We know that that makes our day-to-day routine easier right? But it’s not just because it saves time during a busy work week. It’s not just because it saves you decisions during a busy work week.

It’s also because you get to use the smart part of your brain to make good decisions. Those are the kind of decisions you make when you’re not only concerned about right now & instant gratification. Those are the kind of decisions you make when you’re looking out for what’s best, not for what’s next (easy/available). What’s next is what your toddler brain wants. It’s what wants instant gratification.

What’s next: Cake in conference room

What’s best: Meal prepped meal in lunchbox

What’s next: Wine & cookies

What’s best: Evening walk

What’s next: Starbucks

What’s best: Shake

The more we are using that smart part of our brain (prefrontal cortex), the more we are stepping into the best versions of ourselves, the most evolved versions of ourselves. It’s a habit that will positively effect all parts of our lives.

Cheers!
