Prevent Cold and Flu. Bean Sprout Diet for Skin
March 13, 2012
Self-discipline, Stock, free and other
There is a research about stock saying that those who lost less in the market are the ones who are self-discipline. That is, they have a profit target and stoploss point. When the price rises above that target they sell decisively; when the price gets down below that point they also decisively abandon.
One of Chinese wisdom is "square outside while circle inside" when doing things, which means you should set up a principle first, within that principle you are free to do anything.
For example, if you are a potato chips lover, you should set up a principle, like one bag each week. Then you can eat potato chips every day, but totally not more than one bag each week, or finish a bag at weekend, but cannot eat in other days. If you don't set up any rule you'll eat as much as you want till you have terribly big belly. At that moment all diseases will come to you and your doctor will warn you 'never eat potato chips!" Then you cannot enjoy your favorite food any more.:(
Thus, you should have some rules to have a healthy life. Let's start from today. For instance, exercise at least one hour each day, 6 days for a week. Leave one day to be a lazy guy. Cooking at least three days a week to eat healthy food. Bonus yourself a meal for chocolate cake, chocolate or other cookies and dessert in a month while only have a bite size once a week if you want to eat.
When you setup some rules and abide by it, you'll become used to it. That's the way to form a good habit.
