We could all use a little extra will-power this time of year, so it’s a good time to review the things you can do to help strenghten it:
- Get enough sleep (7+ hours for most people)
- Minimize stress
- Prevent low blood sugar by eating small snacks every few hours
- Pamper yourself with non-edible treats, like bubblebaths, massage, etc.
Research shows that these things make a big difference! Give it a try and remember that the best strategy is to minimize your dependence on will-power by getting all tempting treats out of your home ASAP!
