What is the one single thing you can do to improve your physical and mental healthy?  Most of us know that discipline and will power are needed to accomplish most things in life. Yet recently, two scientist discover a free  and powerful solution– physical exercise. This has been called the willpower miracle by Dr.Kelly McGonial in her best selling book called:

The Willpower Instinct–How Self-Control works.Why it matters,and what you can do to get more of it.   This free e-book provides a break through in self-help science. Do your self a favor and read it today. Based on Stanford University psychologist Kelly McGonigal’s wildly popular course “The Science of Willpower,” The Willpower Instinct is the first book to explain the new science of self-control and how it can be harnessed to improve our health, happiness, and productivity.

On page 42 you will discover an astounding research study by Megan Oaten, a psychologist and Ken Cheng, a biologist, who have some enlightening factors and effects of a new treatment for enhancing self-control and building new habits the in crease personal productivity, energy and happiness. Many scientist have been stunned and pleasantly surprised by the findings. Below I quote from there study::

“The study was made-up of six men and eighteen wowen, ranging  in age from18-55 years old. After two months of intervention treatment the participants showed improvement  in attention span, concentration and the ability to ignore distractions. In addition the subjects reduced their smoking,drinking,and caffine intake –despite that nobody had asked themto do these things. They also were eating less junk food and more healthy food. Thet were spending less time watching TV and more time studying. They were saving more money and spending less on impulsive purchases. They reported that they felt more in control of their emotions and less stressed. These reports were not expected or predicted from this treatment plan.

Here is how physical exercise was used in this study–“The participants, none  of whom exercised regularly before the intervention, were given a free membership to a gym and encouraged to make good use of it.   The result was that participants exercised an average of just one time per week for the first month, but were up to three times per week by the end of the two month study. Remember the researchers did not ask them to make any other changes in their lives, and yet the exercise program seemed to spark new-found strength and self-control in all aspects of their lives.”
