Have you ever asked yourself any of these questions?
Why can’t I control my anger? Or stop overeating? Or wasting time online? Why can’t I seem to finish my projects or make progress in my spiritual life? Why do I fall for the same stupid temptations over and over again?
Today on the podcast, Jonathan sits down with Drew Dyck to talk about self-control. Join Jonathan and Drew as they discuss why self-control is a foundational virtue, why we sometimes view self-control as restricting rather than liberating, why it’s important to understand both the science and spirituality of self-control, how habits work and how to build them, how to have self-control with our electronic devices, and much more.
