My mum usually uses a technique on me to make me do the right things in life. She says “There’s only one reason why you wouldn’t want to make soup for yourself every day and it’s not your laziness. I would ascribe your lack of propensity to make soup to your disinclination to look fit and glowing.” It works on me every time. Do let me know if it worked on you too!
