Flipping through one of Psychology Today’s recent issues, my eyes focused on a short article “Just Give In. Five Indulgences that actually boost self-control” by Kelly McGonigal, Ph.D.
What are these five indulgences? Personally, I was hoping chocolate was on the list. (Unfortunately, it’s not!) McGonigal narrows it down to these five things: a single espresso, an afternoon nap, a snack, YouTube and reality television.
The author writes that “Willpower diminishes as the day wears on, but anything that reduces stress, boosts your mood, or recharges your energy can also reboot your self-control.”
Even “reality TV?”
