Self-discipline is not a punishment. Rather, it is liberation! Self-discipline is a tool you employ to help you move more gracefully through your every day. There are components of it which are familiar like routines and habituated behaviors, and there are some components which seem rather foreign to it like giving yourself permission to be flexible and taking care of yourself first. When applied, self-discipline frees us from overwhelm and frustration. It gives us room and scope to emerge productive and confident.
What will your day bring your way? Make self-discipline a friend and ally. Embrace the perceived constraints and realize they are your liberation from angst and irritations. Love yourself enough to give self-discipline a try. You’ll be glad you did.
