I’ve also started applying the 5-Second Rule in my life — right now I mainly use it with work. I take inbound calls for a company that does underwriting interviews for life and health insurance companies, and the 5-Second Rule gives me time to compose myself so that I can answer each call professionally, even during really busy times like now, with open enrollment just finishing up and agents also working on their end of the year bonus. I’ve been trying to find other ways to use it in my life, but at this point most of my decisions are easy, and there are very few temptations I have to deal with right now (well, other than the temptation to punch my husband in the face when he starts acting like an idiot at night…LOL) Way to go on your accomplishments!

I started writing in elementary school and never stopped. I enjoy sharing stories about my hard-learned life lessons and writing advice.
