Willpower Depletion

I watch Vlogbrothers. It’s a YouTube channel where a pair of brothers vlog with each other. Hank & John Green. 

And the videos are good. Thoughtful and thought provoking.

Hank recently did one on willpower. He talked about the concept of willpower depletion. There is a bunch of fascinating research on the topic. 

People who are internallie motivated have a slower willpower depletion rate. So do people who believe that willpower is an infinite resource. Happie people’s willpower depletes slower as does that of people who have higher blood sugar. 

It’s an interesting concept… And it’s bed time. Tomoro I can test my will power by getting up way earlie.
