The acts of self-consciousness and self-control go hand in hand. The fact
is that when we are self-conscious we are better able to exhibit self-
control. There are many persons out there that are not self aware or
conscious of themselves and they are not in control of their emotions and
actions. Being self-aware is important as it can affect or self-
development and progression through life. It is crucial that we are able
to be aware of all that we do and say and know that these things will
affect circumstances as well. Being self-conscious is not always a bad
thing as we like to think but if we relate it to being self-aware, we see
the benefits.

If we are self-aware, it is less likely that we will act on impulse. It
is more likely the case that we will be ready and able to assess a
situation properly and show self-control in deciding how to approach the
situation. The self-awareness that we possess will therefore directly
affect our self-control. It is crucial that we are able to become self-
aware persons in order to grab control of our emotions and actions. This
can be done in many ways but these depend on the will power of the
individual involved and the desire to take control of their lives.

Some of the ways to move the process to self-awareness and self-control
along include the need for professional assistance. There are many
programmes that offer techniques to assist in this process. These are
offered by many self-development persons and are a good start if we do
not have the time or will power to devote to the process on our own. We
may not make the time unless we are enrolled in a class or unless we are
motivated externally to do so. In these cases, the programmes can be a
great starting point.

If we do have some self-control then it is good to try the other option
of working on self-awareness and control on our own. There are many
persons that have highlighted the great benefits of the use of
meditation. This can assist the individual greatly as it leads the
exploration into self and opens the awareness that is needed for better
self-control. Meditation has numerous benefits to its users aside from
these. It has been reputed to be of assistance in stress relief and the
prevention of more serious illnesses such as heart disease and many more.
The relaxing effect of meditation and the exploration into self-are able
to translate to a better awareness overall and better self control.

The downside of meditation is that it can take a while to reap benefits
and there are often persons that will become bored with the process and
not give the method the required time to assist them. Meditation is not
an overnight fix by any means and can take months and years of dedication
for you to achieve all the results. The meditation process requires quiet
and peace, which can often be hard for many of us to source. Not all
these challenges however stop the fact that it is one of the best ways to
grasp control of self and become more self-aware.

There are other factors that can assist and that can lead you down the
road to better self-awareness and self-control. There is a lot of
information available in self-development sites that show you the
importance of self-awareness and self-control to your life. These are
things that can greatly affect the quality of your life and should not be
disregarded.
