Activity or Exercise – The Art of Self-Control
I don’t know about you, but, for me sometimes procrastination gets in the way. Would you agree? As people, we have many excuses. Let’s be honest. It takes energy and sometimes we don.t have it. That’s okay too, as long as we don’t make a habit of it.
Let me share some thoughts why activity or exercise is good for us; mind, body, and soul.
Mind, exercise has been shown to help reduce symptoms of anxiety and depression, improve mental clarity and focus, and boost overall mood and wellbeing.
Body, regular exercise can improve cardiovascular health, increase strength and endurance, and help maintain a healthy weight, among other benefits.
Soul, exercise can provide a sense of accomplishment, increased self-confidence, and a healthy outlet for stress or emotional tension.
Overall, exercise is a great way to improve the art of self-control, in your physical, mental, and emotional health.
Action – Energy from Within
Let me ask you a question; what’s more believable when some says the words “I love you.” Or you get to visibly see the actions of someone who proves to you day after day that they love you.
See, action refers to what a person does or the physical behavior they exhibit. It is often said that “actions speak louder than words” because a person’s behavior or actions can reveal more about their intentions, beliefs, and character than what they say.
Words, on the other hand, refer to what a person says or communicates verbally. Words can be powerful, but they can also be empty or insincere if they are not backed up by action.
The main difference between action and words is that action is more tangible and concrete than words. While words can be a valuable form of communication, they are often less reliable than actions in revealing a person’s true intentions or values.
Attitude of I Don’t Care.
If I gave away my energy every time something challenged me, I would become weak mentally and physically. If I complained continually instead of meeting those challenge head on. It would create an imbalance within my inner peace. I create solutions to situations and problems.
See, a good attitude refers to having a positive and optimistic outlook on life, whilst a bad attitude refers to a negative or pessimistic mindset. A good attitude involves focusing on solutions rather than the problems, seeking the good in people and situations, being resilient in the face of challenges.
People who have inner peace and positivity tend to be happier, more productive and more successful. Also, they have an improved quality of life and they meet the goals they set.

Alter Your Reality in The Art of Self-Control
Something I do in altering my realty, is practice in changing my thought process. If I’m a little frustrated, I turn my practice into focusing on the positive, this empowers good energy.
I practice gratitude, appreciating the good people or things around me, no matter how small that might be. I visualize my ideal reality, what is my day going to look like, I plan it out, and focus on making it happen. One moment at a time.
I create energy towards those steps to implement it, thus in turn positive changes transpire in my life. It’s real valuable to me to surround myself with people who align, uplift, and encourage one another. I engage in activities that bring joy to them as well as myself. What a positive environment we create. Such energy.
One thing I understand in altering my reality in a positive way and creating inner peace is it takes times, patience and practice in creating the life I love.
The Art of Self-Control Versus Reaction
I know how hard it is to practice the art of self-control, sometimes I have to check myself up. Especially when I don’t feel well, it’s easy to just lose it. But, I do say to myself, that it’s not there fault I am feeling unwell.
You might ask: what is the art of self-control?
Self-control is the ability to regulate and manage one’s own thoughts, emotions, and behaviors in a way that aligns with long-term goals and values, even in the face of temptations or distractions.
It involves being aware of your impulses and choosing actions that are consistent with your goals, even if those actions are uncomfortable or difficult in the short-term. Self-control allows people to resist temptation, delay gratification, and make decisions that lead to better outcomes in the long run.
