No, not the 3 DATE rule. The 3 day rule that I totally just made up. 😃

The 3 Day Rule is that before making any major or emotional decision, you should wait at least 3 days.

(But if you wanted to wait even longer than that, you definitely could. When deciding whether or not to make “optional” expensive purchases, for example, I usually put it on a list and wait about 30 days just to see if I still even want the item after waiting that long. Usually it’s just an impulsive thing and I don’t actually need it).

So if you’re about to do something impulsive or that you know is counter-intuitive to your goals, wait three days and see how you feel about it then. Take a nap. Sleep on it. Distract yourself with something else.

Often the strong feelings we feel in the moment are just temporary feelings. You probably know already if something is a common bad habit for you to fall into — binge eating an entire chocolate cake, overspending on a new wardrobe that you don’t need, quitting a job in the heat of a moment, breaking up with someone on the spot, etc.

Table that decision and wait until you’re feeling more clear-headed before deciding what to do. Three days can make a huge difference in your perspective on a decision. If you need more time, take more time.
