A TEMPT­ING COMBO TO GET THINGS DONE

Prevention (Australia) - - Mind Cover Story -

We all have that dreaded one thing you ‘should’ do ev­ery day, but rarely gets crossed off the to-do list – think, ex­er­cise, vac­u­um­ing the house, floss­ing. But new re­search has found a clever trick to tackle the tasks that end up in the too-hard

(aka, you don’t re­ally want to do them) bas­ket. Called ‘temp­ta­tion bundling’, the idea is to com­bine some­thing you want to do (think pedi­cure, binge watch Net­flix) with a task you’ve been putting off to make it more al­lur­ing. Can we tempt you with th­ese ideas? Clear your in­box + pedi­cure; Lis­ten to your favourite mu­sic + mop; House of Cards episode + tread­mill work­out.
