MORE IDEAS FROM THEARTICLE
Since it has been scientifically proven that we have a limited stash of self-control, use it wisely.
The key is to practice it often...exercise it like a muscle to strengthen and improve over time.
Tip: Begin with delaying gratification, put off short-term desires in favor of long-term rewards...like, sticking to your diet and allowing yourself an occasional treat day.
Building willpower is similar to building muscle. Continually exercising without giving yourself a break is not the best way to increase your strength or performance.
Don't allow yourself to be in a position where you constantly have to exercise self-control. It will eventually deplete your resolve. Allow yourself some recovery time away from temptation.
Ego depletion happens when people use up their available willpower on one task.
We all have natural urges, desires, and tendencies that demand attention. When we curb those urges, it requires willpower. Even small decisions to delay gratification require huge mental, emotional, and cognitive effort. As willpower is a limited resource, when it is used up, we experience mental exhaustion and fatigue.
