自控力 | The Willpower Instinct: How Self-Control Works, Why It Matters, and What You Can Do to Get More of It by Kelly McGonigal

    自控力 | The Willpower Instinct: How Self-Control Works, Why It Matters, and What You Can Do to Get More of It by Kelly McGonigal

    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 science of self-control and how it can be harnessed to improve our health, happiness, and productivity.

    Informed by the latest research and combining cutting-edge insights from psychology, economics, neuroscience, and medicine, The Willpower Instinct explains exactly what willpower is, how it works, and why it matters. For example, listeners will learn:

    • Willpower is a mind-body response, not a virtue. It is a biological function that can be improved through mindfulness, exercise, nutrition, and sleep.   
    • Willpower is not an unlimited resource. Too much self-control can actually be bad for your health.
    • Temptation and stress hijack the brain's systems of self-control, but the brain can be trained for greater willpower   
    • Guilt and shame over your setbacks lead to giving in again, but self-forgiveness and self-compassion boost self-control.   
    • Giving up control is sometimes the only way to gain self-control.   
    • Willpower failures are contagious - you can catch the desire to overspend or overeat from your friends­­ - but you can also catch self-control from the right role models.

    In the groundbreaking tradition of Getting Things DoneThe Willpower Instinct combines life-changing prescriptive advice and complementary exercises to help listeners with goals ranging from losing weight to more patient parenting, less procrastination, better health, and greater productivity at work. 

    作为一名健康心理学家,凯利•麦格尼格尔博士的工作就是帮助人们管理压力,并在生活中做出积极的改变。多年来,通过观察学生们是如何控制选择的,她意识到,人们关于自控的很多看法实际上妨碍了我们取得成功。例如,把自控力当作一种美德,可能会让初衷良好的目标脱离正轨。所以,麦格尼格尔要求她的学生了解影响自控的生理学基础、心理陷阱和各种社会因素。麦格尼格尔吸收了心理学、神经学和经济学等学科的最新洞见,为斯坦福大学继续教育项目开设了一门叫做“意志力科学”的课程,参与过这门课程的人称其能够“改变一生”。这门课程就是《自控力》一书的基础。本书为读者提供了清晰的框架,讲述了什么是自控力,自控力如何发生作用,以及为何自控力如此重要。
