How to Practice Self-Control

How to Practice Self-Control

By Jennifer McDougall

“Everybody in the world is seeking happiness—and there is one sure way to find it. That is by controlling your thoughts. Happiness doesn’t depend on outward conditions. It depends on inner conditions.”
― Dale Carnegie

  1. Know your weaknesses and monitor them as soon as you are triggered to act on them so you can turn away and make better choices
  2. Strengthen your self-discipline by breaking free from procrastination habits and adopt an “I can and I will” attitude
  3. Get rid of all and any temptations (junk food, alcohol, cigarettes, toxic friends or family members, distractions, etc.)
  4. Practice healthy habits such as eating a balanced diet and working out
  5. Set goals and take action rather than making excuses
  6. Check-in with yourself often with daily meditation, deep breathing exercises and journaling
  7. Surround yourself with positive influences
  8. Activate a strong sense of confidence by taking better care of yourself
  9. Be lead by your own purpose and not under the control of others
  10. Don’t be afraid to say “No” Either people will respect your boundaries or they won’t, the ones that don’t are people you don’t need in your life
