8 Easy Ways to Improve Your Self-Control
Nội dung bài viết
The basic definition of self-control, according to psychologists, is “the ability to manage one’s impulses, emotions, and behaviors to achieve long-term goals.” Lacking self-control, especially when it comes to controlling emotions (from intense to merely mildly annoying) however, is more common than you think and a lot of people face this problem on a daily basis. The good news is that you can learn how to control your emotions easily because self-control is one of the most important skills you can ever teach yourself.
We at Bright Side hope you will find a way to improve your self-control and become happier in general. So here is our list of things that can help you get a handle on your emotions, regain self-control, and become the master of your own life.
1. Remember to smile.
2. Focus on your breath.
3. Start journaling.
4. Replace negative habits with positive ones.
5. Create a routine that works for you.
6. Make a to-do list.
On the contrary, it is very important to remind yourself of what your goals are because otherwise it is very easy to stop seeing the forest beyond the trees, as this study demonstrates. Keeping track of what you need to do is very helpful if you want to stay grounded and in control of your emotions. The top tip: Write down a list of the things you want to do upon waking up.
7. Give yourself some “me time.”
The best way to do that is to let go of everything, make some time for yourself, and simply relax. Do something that brings you genuine joy, whether it’s playing a musical instrument, drawing, singing, or dancing like nobody in the world is watching you.
8. Teach yourself how to meditate.
You can find more information about how to meditate in one of our videos on meditation.
