I cannot drink water
I don’t like it
Me: What if cold water?
Him: yup, still water doc
Me thinking of ways to encourage more water intake
I had a poster on benefits of water nicely positioned in the room
Me: *me hinting at said poster*
We talk benefits and how to start the habit
Me: I have an alternative or other things we can try
Him: I’m listening
Me: eating fruits is a way to get hydrated
grinning … see last time he didn’t want to do fruits as he is not a “fruit person”
Watermelon, cucumber , citruses
Him: nicely played doc
I’ll try some fruits this week
Me: try automating purchasing fresh fruits and veggies weekly and eat it a few times a day … say before you watch a funny TikTok video
Him: doc how do you know?
Me: well it’s one of the ways I’m stacking my habits … I guessed on TikTok but mine is instagram at times.
Me: well I reward myself for doing a healthy habit by stacking it on something I do already as a habit. I watch instagram videos sometimes to laugh … before that I’ll send a voice note to check on someone before I watch it. That way I am reinforcing a new habit. By rewarding myself I increase the change of making a new habit- checking in on others frequently!
Him: sounds complicated doc but I’ll try it
Me: let’s stick to you eating one fruit in the morning at 8am and we’ll go from there
Him: sounds like a plan
