Willpower, or self-control, is the cognitive ability to regulate your thoughts, emotions and behavior to triggers and impulses. Resisting temptation and performing challenging tasks require mental energy that can be depleted.
How many times have you said to yourself that your life would be better and more fulfilling if you just had more energy, more willpower to achieve the goals you have set for yourself?
The ability to forgo immediate gratification in pursuit of a greater goal is considered one of the best predictors of success in life, which is why willpower is a much desired personality trait.
Willpower is like a muscle
One of the greatest things about willpower is that it is something that can be trained. While some people are more conscientious than others from birth, self-control can be improved if procrastination is your worst enemy.
By practicing on how to live in the now and be present in the moment, it will become easier to regulate your emotions and thoughts. You spend less energy on fretting about what may come or has to be done. It becomes easier to relax and gain mental clarity to make better decisions and get things done.
Willpower has its limits
Our amount of self-control is not limitless. Every time that we exercise our willpower, it depletes some of our mental energy. This is why, as the day goes on, many people have a harder time to control their urges, temper and bad habits.
Exercising our will takes from the same reserve as our focus and can be treated in a similar way. When we are tired, low in energy, high on stress, our willpower wanes. This also means that if you are high in energy, you can draw from a bigger reserve and make better choices throughout the day.
In the end, it is not just about increasing your willpower, as that has its limits, but about having fewer temptations in the first place. The latter can be achieved by obtaining a clear mind.
Conscious breathing as instructed in the Breatheology Method help you gain clarity through the various visualization and relaxation techniques and improve your energy levels so you can exercise willpower when it truly matters.
Breathing is the key to more willpower
Through breathing and breath holding we can improve our willpower. Our ability to say no and persist through hard times is a combination of mental clarity and resistance. Both can be gained and trained directly through the breath.
