Wellness is not a medical fix. Wellness is a lifetime attitude of excellence towards the highest respect to one’s body where the maker of the body resides.
What is it about self-control that makes it so difficult to rely on? Self-control is a skill we all possess (honest); yet we tend to give ourselves little credit for it. Self-control is so fleeting for most that when Martin Seligman and his colleagues at the University of Pennsylvania surveyed two million people and asked them to rank order their strengths in 24 different skills, self-control ended up in the very bottom slot (for the record, self-control is a key component of emotional intelligence).
Self-Control Secret – Meditate
Meditation actually trains your brain to become a self-control machine (and it improves your emotional intelligence). Even simple technique like mindfulness, which involves taking as little as five minutes a day to focus on nothing more than your breathing and your senses, improves your self-awareness and your brain’s ability to resist destructive impulses. Buddhist monks appear calm and in control for a reason.
