What the Research on Habit Formation Reveals About Willpower (And How You Can Apply it to Your Life)

What the Research on Habit Formation Reveals About Willpower (And How You Can Apply it to Your Life) | Flow & Happiness in life, sport and work ! | Scoop.it

In the past decade, there has been a lot of fascinating academic research conducted around habit formation and willpower. By examining things like how smokers quit, why student perform well, and how New Year's resolvers stay on track, researchers are starting to piece together the answers to how we can build lasting habits and improve our ability to resist temptation. One surprising result is this: to improve your overall well-being, start a new regular habit. Pretty much any positive habit will do.

At the turn of the 21st century, a landmark meta-study was conducted that looked at the question "Does Self Control Resemble a Muscle?" After reviewing hundreds of studies over the past few decades, the authors concluded that the answer was "Yes, it does."

Social scientists all over the world started to examine willpower and self-regulation from this "muscle" metaphor. For instance, if willpower is like a muscle, and muscles can get stronger over time with training, could willpower similarly be trained and strengthened?

Paul Grout's comment, August 23, 2013 2:57 AM
Strong enthusiasm and willpower is great to get started with our missions to serve the world. My concern is that if we keep pushing ourselves without enjoying the process we can may start to become lost in the field of 'wanting' and not doing.

We are all creative machines who desire passion and purpose in what we do. So I believe that willpower is much more effective when we create a underlining purpose which gives us the passion keep on track to achieve the goal with flow. Focus is very important. What helps me stay on track of my mission to help people find their creative flow is to ensure I have a healthy balance for work and play. For example, I normally get my best ideas when I relax and dedicate time for fun. Thank you for this inspiring post. http://creativeflowevolution.com

(From the article): So when you approach a new task, do you expect (perhaps deep down) to be able to do the work flawlessly, no matter how challenging it might be?  Are you focused on being good, rather than getting better?
 

If so, then here are three steps to shifting your mindset, and freeing yourself from The Fear of Mistakes:

L’intellect est très utile dans notre monde, mais aujourd’hui le mental ne devrait-il pas être mis au service de l’intelligence et de la conscience qui est avant l’intellect (étape finale du processus de conscientisation)? Nous avons besoin de rééquilibrer l’ordre des choses en mettant l’être au service de sa propre conscience et réduire la toute puissance du mental pour entrer dans le monde de l’hyperconscience et du ressenti (état de zone).


Qu’est ce que l’hyperconscience (état d’être dans la zone)?

L’émerveillement est dans ce présent où émerge la source inconnue de l’hyperconscience. L’hyperconscience inclut l’objet et le sujet en même temps, ce qui veut dire qu’il n’y a plus d’extérieur à la conscience (le mental s’évanouit dans le présent).

Working Out Doesn’t Just Make You Stronger, It Makes You Smarter

Working Out Doesn’t Just Make You Stronger, It Makes You Smarter | Flow & Happiness in life, sport and work ! | Scoop.it
We already know the facts: Our country is in the midst of an obesity epidemic. Few American adults exercise enough, and that poor lifestyle choice is getting handed down to our children, who are getting fat at record levels.

 

And all that obesity is affecting our health, causing heart disease, diabetes, and untold other health consequences. But what if the effects aren’t only mental?

 

This new infographic, from OnlineCollegeCourses.com points out that exercise has some great benefits for not just how our body works, but how our brains work, too. It’s clearly important for kids, who need all the brain power they can get for school, but it’s equally important for adults: A fit worker is a fast, efficient worker.

 

First, let’s review the facts. Children--who should be buzzing about with so much energy that we have to ask them not to exercise--aren’t moving around that much anymore. (Ironically, part of the problem is the diminished role of phys ed in many public schools.) Only one in four children get 30 minutes of daily exercise, and by the time they’re teenagers, only 12% are getting their daily recommended amount of physical activity.

Think of the last time you struggled to focus on a boring or difficult task. Your wandering attention probably felt like it was outside your control, as if you suddenly lost the ability to focus and didn't know how to regain it. We all feel that way sometimes.

Even in those moments, when you feel like you're fighting against your own instincts, you can stop procrastinating and get focused. You just need to recharge your willpower.

Technology can be an anxiety-producing energy depending on our approach. How we discipline ourselves and think about the daily onslaught of e-mail, voicemail, and text messages impacts how much we are truly connected or disconnected in our life. Mindfulness practices recommended in this article are very practical and impacts the quality of connections between people and their capacity to feel seen, heard and valued.

Dedicated entrepreneurs sometimes keep workingtowards their goals even though their bodies tell them to quit and go to bed. It is called nothing other than dedication, and it is a tool that most entrepreneurs use quite often to get ahead of the game. Only our bodies know what cost of this is. It’s a great tool to use, but the negative effects of it might be more costly than the gain of the actual work completed. It is said that you can neverget back the sleep you’ve lost. That basically means that even though you decide to sleep a couple of hours longer after a long 24 hour shift, you will still not have made up for the lost sleep that you were supposed to get hours ago. It’s just how the body works.
