I recently read the book (well, um, the audiobook)…Willpower: Rediscovering the Greatest Human Strength by Roy F. Baumeister and John Tierney. The book got me thinking. What is willpower powered by? How can we recharge our willpower? Here are some answers:

1) Eat Regular Meals. Read more here.
2) Exercise. Read more here.
3) Sleep. Read more here.
On days you eat regular meals (like this), exercise & sleep, it is easier to resist junk food & show up in the world the person you want to be.
Bottom line: You will be more likely to make better life decisions (food & beyond) when your willpower is properly recharged.
Willpower is like a muscle – the more you use it, the stronger it gets.
