Will Power - a limited resource!
Further to yesterday’s post, when using will power you are using brain power. 🧠 You are working those “mental muscles” and just like your actual muscles, they get fatigued and exhausted. Eventually they give out and you appear to lose self control.
Often, people spend their whole day using mental energy only to find that when they get home they suddenly have no will power left. If this is you, please understand that it's not necessarily because you're lazy or resistant to change; you're just mentally worn out. Everything counts.
Here are some ways you can exhaust your "will power resource" without even realizing it:
1. Making tough decisions - These could be family or work related 👩🏻‍⚖️👩🏽‍🚒👩🏼‍🔬👨🏿‍💻 but really any tough decision that you have to think hard about.
2. Restraining emotion - Like keeping your cool in traffic, for example. 🚗
3. Controlling spending - Worrying about the budget, or making decisions while shopping and eating out. 🤑
4. Focusing on simple instructions - Putting a lot of thought into something new, even if it’s simple, can use a lot of brain power. This could occur at work or home. For example, maybe you're trying out a new recipe, which takes careful measuring and following specific steps. 🤔
5. Coping with fear - The anxiety you feel when your boss calls you into her office, or maybe you had medical tests and you are awaiting a result. 😳
6. Managing the impression we are making on others - We all want others to like us, but it can be exhausting if you are not being yourself. 🧑🏻🧔🏾👱🏻‍♀️
Tomorrow, we'll look at strategies to limit the use of will power throughout the day, such as developing routine habits and ways to reduce the amount of decisions you make each day.

💔 The last male northern white rhino, #sudan died on Monday 💔there are two female northern white rhinos still alive at the #olpejetaconservancy in Kenya. And scientists hope they can use in-vitro fertilization to preserve the subspecies. Maybe one day compassion will triumph over greed💔 #educate #awareness #exctinctionisforever #greed #kenya #olpejeta #stoppoaching #rhinos #extinction #science #teachcompassion #poachers
