Ever use the phrase “What the hay”?
It’s a phrase I remember growing up with and it meant some sort of mix between “What the heck”, “What the hell”, and “Why not give it a try”.
What The Hay is the answer to the excuses we use to convince ourselves to not do stuff
We are really good at using logical reasoning to come up with perfectly plausible reasons to talk ourselves out of doing something that falls outside our comfort zone (or away from our comfy couch in front of Netflix).
Instead of bailing out…
The next time you catch yourself making an excuse to stay home instead of going out to meet your friends or visit the farmer’s market, or see a live concert because parking is a pain, crowds are annoying, or a million other perfectly reasonable excuses you fall back on, try saying “What the hay” and go do it anyway.
