Transcript of Self Control
You can try to meditate. Everybody probably knows the idea of meditation but I bet that not a lot of you know how to actually meditate the real way. You don't have to twist up your legs or do anything crazy. Here is a very easy method of meditation called One Moment Meditation. It actually works!
Walking around or exercising for 10 minutes can give you a boost of self control that could save you from having a miserable day. It can also benefit the people around you. Getting active by just running around can make a noticeable difference. Other people notice it and you can too!

What is Self Control?
Self control is knowing when to stop and controlling yourself. It is making the right decision such as choosing an apple over cake. Self control is doing the right thing.
Your brain burns deeply into your stores of glucose when trying to have self control. Eating something that burns slowly in your body, like whole grain rice or meat, will give you a longer time to have self control. Eating candy doesn't leave a very big window for self control.
The Benefits of Meditation

Increases blood flow and slows down the heart rate

Getting a good night's sleep is a must in order to have self-control. When you are tired, your brain cells’ ability to absorb glucose is highly diminished. Your brain's ability to control impulses is nothing without glucose. Another bad thing about being tired is that you crave sugary foods.
Glucose- a simple sugar that is an important energy source in humans and animals and is a component of many carbohydrates.
