Are You “Should”-ing All Over Yourself?

  • I should pay the bills.
  • I should exercise.
  • I should organize my emails.
  • I should set social media boundaries for my daughter.
  • I should take a shower (a popular one with work from home.)
  • Instead of, “I should pay the bills,” try “I want to pay the bills so that I don’t incur late fees.”
  • Instead of, “I should exercise,” try “I want to exercise so I can live a long, healthy life.”
  • Instead of, “I should set social media boundaries for my daughter,” try “I want to set boundaries so that my daughter gets relief from social pressures.”
