Picture the following scenarios:

It’s late at night, and you’ve got a looming deadline for work — yet, instead of getting your work done, you’re scrolling through social media, or mindlessly watching TV.

You’ve promised yourself you’d start eating more healthfully, but can’t resist that morning stop for fast food on the way to your job.
