From Embracing Intensity Podcast ep. 190

For many years I thought I needed more self control to help develop health habits that would help my chronic pain and fatigue, but I eventually came to realize that I was focusing on the wrong thing. Instead of self control, I needed to focus on self-regulation. Self control is about forcing yourself, while self-regulation is about helping yourself.

In this episode:

  • The difference between self control and self-regulation.

  • With self control, the focus is often on deprivation and forcing yourself to do something.

  • Willpower is a limited resource.

  • With self-regulation, the focus is on setting up tools, environment etc. to help facilitate behaviors you want to change.
