Developing Self Control And Self Discipline

Avoid Temptations

Don't put yourself in temptation's way, or if you do, have a plan. You may have temptation for candy or chocolate, for example. So tell yourself I cannot and will not keep it in the home. Do not to look for it or ask for it. Knowing your weakness, enact a plan to ensure you are no longer tempted by these addictions.

Stress Hormones

Stress strongly depletes willpower. When people are stressed, they tend to fall back on ingrained habits, whether those habits are helpful or harmful. Often, this is not a conscious choice. Rather, people resort to old habits without thinking because they are in a stressed state. These are highly stressful situations, and your body will respond by boosting stress hormones, notably cortisol.

Cortisol boosts cravings, for example, carbohydrates and alcohol as they lower cortisol levels. But the downside of dealing with stress this way is that, in the long run, you risk obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disease and alcholism. Every time you respond to cortisol surges through unhealthy means, you strengthen those habits. So under times of stress, you will almost always fall back on these habits.

To deal with these stress-induced surges in cortisol and manage your cravings for sugar or alcohol, start responding with healthier choices, such as listening to calming music, visualizing or viewing calming scenes, moderate exercise — whatever works for you.

Overcome Feeling Overwhelmed

Often people give up not because they lack willpower, but because they feel overwhelmed by the enormity of the goal they must accomplish. A good way to deal with this feeling of overwhelm is to break the goal down into manageable pieces, and line them up in a sequence that guarantees success.

Balance Between Giving To Others And To Yourself

When it comes to willpower, people-pleasers may find themselves at a disadvantage compared to those who are secure and comfortable with themselves. It takes an enormous amount of effort to suppress your normal personality, preferences, and behaviors. By exerting self control in order to please others, rather than towards your own internal goals and desires, can deplete willpower.

That is not to say you act selfishly, when one gives unconditionally the universe will respond positively in turn, yet let go of the outcome. You must find a healthy balance between what you give out to others and give to yourself.

Develop And Strengthen Your Self-Control
