Healthy Trickery

I heard a story about a woman who kept her makeup bag at the gym. If she wanted to face the deep powdered and-, she was “forced” to go work out. Another woman slept in her sports bra so she could wake up and hit the ground running- until her doctor told her it might not be healthy for the girls. Then she placed her sneakers parallel to the threshold of her bedroom at night, so she’d have to stop over them in the morning. If she chose to blow off her workout (cue the reckoning!) “What these stores demonstrate is stimulus control, where you set up your environment to signal health habits. By linking fitness to something you already have to do(like leave you bedroom or get ready for work), it becomes harder and less convenient to not work out.
