How Self-Discipline Benefits Your Health
The truth is from my perspective, self-discipline makes your life better in every single way. Without question. Here is why.
When you work on building your self-discipline in all aspects of your life, you’re going to end up happier, more successful, less stressed and physically healthier too. There are many reasons why being self-disciplined benefits your health, so let’s look at a few.
When you have self-discipline, you’re able to get up on time, get to work on time and get your work done promptly. You’re also able to incorporate exercise, eating right, and getting to bed at a set time due to your ability to understand that setting small daily goals will ensure you reach success. When you get that, you can make bigger and better goals with higher standards because you know how to do it.
By learning how to create the self-discipline of rules of eating real food, organic is your best choice, you’re not going to be tempted by junk food, or highly processed foods that you know are detrimental for your health and well-being. Instead, you will stay focused on what you know is best for you while realizing that your choices are serving you for your lifetime of improved health, and well-being. You have no problem saying no because you understand the power of small choices.
Because you know that moving is something that will make you healthier, give you more energy, and help you get through the day with more power, you exercise intentionally. When you exercise that way, you will be healthier in every single way. Self-discipline helps you create a daily habit of exercise that you make time for on purpose, and that makes you healthier.
Self-disciplined people tend to stick to a standard day. They get up and go to bed (for the most part) at the same time each day. This is what helps them get on a normal schedule, find ways to fit more into each day and get to bed on time. They can sleep the recommended 7 to 9 hours a night depending on their personal needs.
You’re not the least bit tempted to over-drink. You keep track of your drinks and switch off with water if it’s going to be a long night so that you don’t drink more than the recommended two or at most three drinks during a party. This ensures you still make good choices.
Because you regularly weigh yourself and understand the relationship between body weight and belly fat to health, you stay on top of that. When you maintain a healthy weight, you’ll have more energy to get through each day.
Because you’re not rushed, pressured, or stressed – a no-drama day does that for you - you'll be able to keep your emotions steady and not become a moody person. In fact, even if you do have a moment of anger, you’re able to control it because you have such a good handle on your emotions.
Because of your ability to think things through, match the situation with your values, and then make a choice based on that knowledge, you tend to make better decisions that benefit your health by avoiding dangerous situations.
Before you try any fad diet, or any new potion or pill, work on improving your self-discipline. More than likely it will be the main thing that you can point to as to the reason for your success. In fact, it’s probably the reason anyone experiences success regularly.
