Self – Control is the ability to have control on once emotions such as anger, overwhelming feeling, fear, anxiety and appear calm.
Self-control is often referred to as will power. Self Control is described as a cognitive process that is necessary for regulating one’s behaviour in order to achieve specific goals.
Self-control impacts every area of our lives. Personally, you need to exercise self-control with your diet, television intake, and excessive shopping, just to name a few examples.
Individuals with low self-control tend to be impulsive, insensitive towards others, risk takers, short-sighted, and nonverbal. The general theory of crime holds that self-control is established in early childhood through three major factors:
Many things affect on one’s ability to exert self-control, but it seems that self – control requires sufficient glucose levels in the brain. Exerting self-control depletes glucose. Reduced glucose, and poor glucose tolerance (reduced ability to transport glucose to the brain) are correlated with lower performance in tests of self – control, particularly in difficult new situations. Self-control demands that an individual work to overcome thoughts, emotions, and automatic responses | impulses. These strong efforts require higher blood glucose levels. Lower blood glucose levels can lead to unsuccessful self-control abilities.
Alcohol causes a decrease of glucose levels in both the brain and the body, and it also has an impairing effect on many forms of self – control. Furthermore, failure of self – control occurs most likely during times of the day when glucose is used least effectively. Self – Control thus appears highly susceptible to glucose.
