Sleep deprivation makes you weak and tired. It has a direct impact on your focus and decision-making, whilst slowly exhausting your source of energy.
Sleep between 7.5 and 8.5 hours a night. A good rest makes it much easier to deal with daily activities and challenges.
Self-compassion works much better than self-criticism when we have to deal with failures, or not reaching a certain goal.
People who exercise self-compassion tend to develop a willingness to learn from their mistakes. They find it easier to recover from setbacks and pursue positive change.
It’s easy to give in to temptation, feeling guilty about yourself afterward.
A good meal and regular exercise can decrease the desire for smoking, alcohol and caffeine consumption, and increase healthy eating and emotional control. Look for activities you enjoy, such as jogging, cycling, swimming, martial arts, etc.
When we are stressed, we tend to unconsciously fall back on ingrained habits, whether they are helpful or harmful.
Creating good habits helps you get through stressful situations without affecting your willpower.
The 2-Minute rule is a great way to break the first and most difficult barrier of procrastination: getting started.
Make the following deal with yourself: you’ll do it for just 2 minutes. Most of the time you will continue with whatever you are doing.
Our environment has a great influence on our behavior. For example, if you mute and put away your phone while working or studying, you will be less tempted to look at it.
Associate your environment with a specific task. Re-arrange everything you want to focus on, and keep away the things that take away your concentration.
In the event of an emergency, giving in to a piece of chocolate is not a bad thing.
The small energy boost from dark chocolate will help you to focus on the decision.
Sometimes the complexity or importance of the task is overwhelming.
Break down the task into as many manageable parts as possible, organizing them in a logical sequence. This guarantees that you will never put yourself in a state of willpower depletion.
Meditation improves your attention, focus, self-awareness, and lower your stress levels.
Meditating for even just a few minutes every day will help you to clear your head while activating the areas of your brain related to decision-making and emotions.
We make many decisions on any day, from the most simple, like what to eat for lunch, to important ones.
Create the habit of performing some activities without having to rely on your willpower. For example, previously packing your clothes in order to avoid excuses for not exercising.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
