The following exercise is from Dieter Broer, a scientist of biophysics who connects science and spirituality.
Before you buy something, ask yourself 3 questions:

  • Do I really need it?
  • What for do I need it?
  • Could I wait a little bit longer before buying it?


With these questions you can become aware if you really want and need something, or you would buy it out of a reaction or pattern, i.e.: “I need to buy something to feel good”, “I should buy another CD”, “this object will make me feel better”, etc.
