Most people practice a degree of Self Control on a daily basis. Whether it is to avoid rage at work, or ridiculing someone who is not performing to the level of others, or putting aside that boring spreadsheet and do something more fun; people find that inner control to alter the behavior. Unfortunately, there are others who have issues controlling their emotions, anger, and slothfulness and give into the negative behavior.
There are some solutions to help regain those levels of Self Control, and there are many self help books and tapes. As with many other programs, the first step is to determine which areas in life where the individual is suffering or failing and which areas are successful. Then determine what the difference is that makes one area successful and the other a failure. For many who are going to school it may be due to too many games being played and not enough study. On a daily basis, set a goal to increase the study time until the subject becomes interesting.
If loss of Self Control is due to disturbing eruptions, then determine what it is causing the frustration. It could be due to too many projects piled on at the same time with close due dates, and the frustration of trying to get them all done. Setting priorities is one way to lower the frustrations that is causing the outbursts, and if it requires asking relinquishing a couple of projects to lower the stress, then that may be a necessity.
There are even different types of meditations that helps people stop the actions that makes them lose their Self Control and they are very effective. Regular meditation helps calm the mind and focus on resolving the issues that are causing the frustrations. Lowering stress and getting restful sleep is beneficial to maintaining the ability to control oneself and guided meditations specific to regaining self control are extremely effective. Positive self talk techniques are covered in many of these meditation techniques which leads to better control.
When there are areas that force the individual to lose control, for some, exercising at the gym, running, or swimming gets the endorphins and lessens the feeling of rage or frustration. Many self help books recommend routine workouts to help get the body and the mind into a healthier state.
