1) People who are better at self-control actually enjoy the activities some of us resist — like eating healthy, studying, or exercising.
2) People who are good at self-control have learned better habits

This jibes with my experience. E.g., I managed ton finally work out on a regular basis when I found a good, not-stressful time to do it, and found a kind of workout that was easy to implement and that I generally enjoyed.

  1. It matches my experience too. You need to find a thing you enjoy if you want it to succeed long term. Don’t like running? Don’t run, do something else. There’s hundreds of activities you can do to stay fit!

    You may also notice that those who eat healthier also tend to cook – this is how you make it fun.
