Now, let’s look into some general areas in all our lives that seek self-control
We all love food, don’t we? But is it good to eat all sorts of food, all the time, no, right? So, here’s where we need to control our diet. All biology books speak about a balanced diet and so we should balance our diet, keeping in mind the leisures and limitations of our own body.
We start exercising one day and on the eight day all the motivation to workout and get fit is gone. We have to control our tendency to become lazy and sleep that extra hour. Nothing is going to happen if you don’t sleep an hour less, but a lot will happen if you don’t workout for that one hour every day. It makes all the difference. Here the game changer is going to be your habit of self-control.
Many of us like to drink or consume alcohol. Yes, it is very true that both of these items, consumed in any amount, have some guaranteed negative effects. Hence, as far as possible we should not be dependent on them, however if you are used to it, control the amount you consume, you’ll see how largely you are benefitted and you never know you might actually end up not consuming any of these.
We are humans and many of us have a habit to simply blurt anything that comes to mind. This can cost you a lot, if you do not nip it in the bud. Hence, practice controlled and thoughtful speech, speak only as much as required and do not stay silent when you are supposed to speak. This is the good that self-control can do to you.
