How To Protect Yourself From Yourself

Prevent yourself from falling into future traps by removing temptations in advance:

  • Don’t keep certain foods in the house.
  • Block yourself from certain websites.
  • Mute commercials (or don’t watch TV at all).
  • Don’t go to the bar.
  • Stay away from certain people.
  • Put money into a locked-in retirement account.

These are a few ideas.

Protect yourself from moments of weakness while in moments of strength. Now is probably one of those moments.
