The fall and winter holidays test willpower
like nobody's business. No sooner has the last piece of Halloween candy been
consumed than we succumb to stuffing-and-pumpkin-pie season. And it's a mere
blink between that last bite of turkey and the first candy cane. Next up, eggnog,
hot chocolate and New Year's champagne. Do you think it's possible to boost
one's willpower before the chocolate Easter eggs and jelly beans start rolling
Experts are divided on whether willpower is
fixed and limited, dictated by biology and our brain's hard-wiring, or if
willpower is self-renewing, capable of being increased through consistent
application and hard work.
We're no experts, but we like the findings

believe that willpower is self-renewing, that hard work provides energy to work
even harder and that resisting one temptation makes resisting the next even
easier, we see that boosting willpower is possible.
