Willpower Is NOT On COMMAND

Willpower Is NOT On COMMAND

The one thing I learned from my research was that willpower on command is a lie. Saying to yourself that you are not going to eat that cookie just simply doesn’t work.

Willpower is actually a muscle. And by being uncomfortable slowly, you are training your willpower muscle to grow.

Willpower is highest in the morning and lowest in the afternoon. Do your willpower draining task as the first thing in the day.

Recover Your Willpower

Recover Your Willpower

Since willpower is a muscle, rest your willpower muscle with a healthy activity such as socializing with friends or family members or sleeping.

Overeating can destroy your willpower. The antidote is to fast, especially do an Islamic Fast which means to stay away from all kinds of pleasure ( food, water, intimacy, music etc ) from sunrise to sunset.
