THE TRUTH ABOUT REFRAIN+

will-patrons-kindly-refrain-from

Refrain: v. to oppose and not fulfill an impulse to say something and/or to achieve a goal(s)

 

Many of us have stopped ourselves from blurting out an obscenity in public and stopped ourselves from hitting our offspring when they have misbehaved badly. When we do that we are refraining from doing something inappropriate or bad.

Many teenagers are impulsive and don’t refrain from doing some pretty stupid or inappropriate things. Teenage rebelliousness is wanting to oppose conventional ways of behaving and doing so without refraining the traditional way.

HOW TO DECREASE IMPULSE SHOPPING 15 WAYS!!!

Shopping

Make a shopping list of things you really need and try sticking to only the items on it without buying anything extra.

Before you buy small money items ask yourself “do I want it” or “really need it” and is it something for which I can wait a week, or month before purchasing. If you don’t need it right away or the next few days then don’t buy it.

Before buying big money items take some time out to do research or comparison shopping from more than one store or location.

Budget your money and don’t overspend your monthly limit. Except for food and gas for work try to shop once a month, save about 10% for emergencies such as car repairs, and don’t exceed your budget unless it is an emergency.

Don’t use a credit card but use cash which you bring along or a debit card which prevents you from going into debt for it.

Take a picture of the item which you impulsively want to buy with the price tag and comparison shop at home.

If you are actually shopping for an item to buy and you find that it is on sale then that is the time to buy and don’t buy something only because it is on sale and you probably don’t really need it right away or within a few days if at all.

Shop in your clothing closet first for long unworn items which may be exactly what you think you need to buy new.

Don’t shop when angry or upset because you will be tempted to buy just to make you feel better.

Instead of satisfying an urge to shop focus on some crafting or interesting hobby instead until the urge to shop goes away. Find something to do which is almost as pleasurable as shopping and develop a good frugal habit by doing it more frequently.

If your friends are compulsive shoppers then avoid shopping with them if you can’t abandon them.

Find new friends whose life does not revolve around shopping.

Don’t buy anything from a store without a return policy and definitely start using the privilege if you start having second thoughts about the purchase.

Don’t consider shopping a form of entertainment. It is costly fun.

If you have a penny pincher in the family then let them do most of the shopping.

THE TRUTH ABOUT CONVINCING***

tumblr_n9azs3kdqK1szm930o1_500

Convince: v. to persuade yourself without coercion using internal and external information

When you persuade yourself that a goal(s) is worth achieving then you have been convinced. You may impulsively eat or drink something which you are not convinced is healthy for you but you still do it because it is emotionally satisfying at that moment. You can do something bad and not be convinced that it is good for you to do.

 

Impulsive emotional reactions do not involve much logical thinking and they historically may have been started with some erroneous persuasion or convincing. What you are largely impulsively doing today is rooted in decisions and experiences which you made in the past and decided were the right thing to do at that time. Today your views of what is right may have changed but you are still being victimized impulsively by bad historical choices.

 

You may be convinced that your bad habits need change but you may not be able to develop enough selfcontrol to do anything about your pleasurable bad impulses or bad habits.

 

Convincing or persuading yourself is the eternal struggle of your impulsive self battling with your thinking self, trying to agree, and trying to make the right choices of what to do next in your life.
