I recently saw a post on Pinterest with all these rules for cheat days. But…isn’t the point of having a cheat day to have no rules?
Cheat days are usually used in diets where a person would allow themselves to basically screw their diet and eat whatever they want for a day. For me this is usually the day that throws me completely off the wagen and ends my diet… buut that’s besides the point.
My point is that I think everyone should INSIST on having regular cheat days. And not just in terms of a diet, but in everyday life.
A day with no rules.
Allow yourself to have a day where you do NO work, eat what you want, drink anything you’d like, and just be alive.
Even if you are the boss and you think your company revolves around you, you need to allow yourself days where you just stay in bed and drink wine.
Yes, it might be hard to get back into your boring routine after cheating – but that’s the point! Let these days change your attitude, your way of living, throw you off balance and create new challenges for the future.
I go ALL OUT with these days… they are not only something to look forward to and live for in the moment, but they are SO GOOD that they affect the rest of my life.
Now I’m not saying that you should do something stupid like commit a murder ( I said break the rules not the law). Just do the things you would usually feel too guilty to do – guilt free. Do anything and everything that makes you happy.
Switch off your phone, heck, just leave it at home. Don’t let ANYTHING interrupt your cheat day, and you will see what a positive impact it will make on you regular days.
Because oh… will you have many regular days.
