flex that self-con­trol mus­cle

Good Health Choices - - Be Informed -

For­get the old chicken and the egg

co­nun­drum; the real ques­tion is: which came first, the ex­er­cise or the self con­trol? We all know the men­tal

com­mit­ment re­quired to turn up to work­outs, but it ap­pears that ex­er­cise is ac­tu­ally very good at build­ing our ‘self-con­trol mus­cle’ as well. A group of re­searchers at the Uni­ver­sity of Kansas

tested this out on a group of women over a two-month pe­riod and found that the ma­jor­ity of them gained a ‘no­table’

amount of self con­trol, and that the more they ex­er­cised, the more their

self con­trol grew too
