So you're following your diet. You're fighting hard to stick to it, resisting the temptations of the biscuits doing the rounds in the office, stopping yourself pinching a few chips off the kids plates at dinner time, and avoiding meeting up with your friends so you're not pressured into having a few drinks. Everything is going well for a while, but eventually it becomes too much. 'Willpower' starts to give out and you give in. Suddenly half a box of chocolates has disappeared!?
Time is our most precious commodity. We all face so many demands on it though:
work throws meetings, targets and deadlines at us; the kids need organising, taxiing to friends houses or to sports clubs; friends want us to meet up and go for a few drinks; then there’s the time we want to spend some time on ourself, putting our feet up, chilling out catching up on some tv or whatever book we’ve been reading.
