A Look at Temptation Bundling
Temptation Bundling is a concept that Katy Milkman at The University of Pennsylvania developed. Simply put, the strategy suggests that you bundle a behavior that is good for you in the long-run with a behavior that feels good in the short-run.
Here are a few common examples of temptation bundling:
- Only listen to audiobooks or podcasts you love while exercising.
- Only get a pedicure while processing overdue work emails.
- Only watch your favorite show while ironing or doing household chores.
- Only eat at your favorite restaurant when conducting your monthly meeting with a difficult colleague.

Action Items From the Hosts
Kelly - Think about my future self when it comes to things like vitamins, eating right or exercising. What can I do in the present to make the future better?
Maria - Take the time to be intentional about what I am doing. Get a wall calendar and mark a red “X” for the days I complete a new eating habit or string together an action that will help me reach my goal.
