WILLPOWER – AND HOW TO GET MORE OF IT
Willpower is apparently like a muscle. The more you exercise it, the stronger it gets. The University of Albany in New York conducted an experiment with a group of 122 smokers who wanted to quit. They were asked to exert extra self control for two weeks by either giving up sweets or squeezing a stress ball for as long and as hard as they could twice a day. Those who were diligent about doing their self-control exercises became more successful quitters than those who didn’t do them.
