Self Control

~~SELF-CONTROL~~ A couple posts ago we compared the limbic system, the emotional part of our brain, with the neocortex, the logical part of our brain. It's the development of an intricate neocortex that truly differentiates us as humans from other animals. And it's the neocortex that gives us the ability as humans to have self-control, and NOT act on every felt emotion ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ˜ค๐Ÿ˜ฉ . Psychologists describe self-control to be like a muscle ๐Ÿ’ช. The more we exercise self-control on a regular basis, the stronger we get. And as our self-control increases, the more we gain the ability to direct our lives in a manner that is our true selves โ˜๏ธ. Here's to exercising that self-control muscle, ermm neocortex, in 2019! ๐Ÿ‹๐Ÿ‹๐Ÿ‹ . #health #mentalhealth
