I’m listening to this podcast episode about abstaining from a pleasure for a period of time:
And they mentioned the idea of taking breaks from something on a recurring basis.
I wondered if any of you have done this? What was your experience?
At a practical level, seems like it would be pretty simple to do with Beeminder. Make a do-more goal with a rate of 1/day for having an x-free day, and then periodically schedule long breaks when you feel you can handle it. Of course I’ve already had goals that follow this template, but haven’t thought about them or used breaks for those goals in that way.
