Let yourself choose
"It is very important not to act on the impulse, but to make a conscious choice. To learn this, it is enough to give yourself the opportunity to choose a minimum of three options at least in one aspect of your day, "says a practitioner psychologist, the founder and ideolog of the community of professional psychologists Otvet.CO Veronika Sidorov. – That is how it behaves "Nice good mother" (in psychology there is such a term) with his child. She offers him options to choose from provided that their basic relationships are saved. For example, for lunch, she gives him himself to decide what it will eat: mashed potatoes, soup or stew vegetables. Thus, the baby learns to choose, learns to determine what he feels what he wants. But if in front of him mom every day would raise a plate of soup, without specifying, he wants him or not, learn to choose it would be very difficult. The problem is that in his adult life we continue to act on the specified scenario. For example, in the morning we are in a hurry to work and know that we have a cup of coffee and glazed cheese. We do not ask ourselves: "I want this breakfast really?" We do not have enough skill to offer yourself an alternative. So I advise you to take a rule for at least one aspect of your day to give yourself several options. To have a buzz, conscious pleasure, and not just an action on the impulse ".
