I have been thinking a lot of which could be the most important skill I need to develop during this, or any crisis, and honestly, I am absolutely convinced that in all critical situations staying disciplined is the most healthy tool I should reinforce.
Self discipline is the secret
I also believe that the only type of discipline is self-discipline. Self-discipline is the ability to control one’s behavior and overcome one’s weaknesses in order to pursue something considered right for me. Self discipline allows me, despite all the difficulties and temptations, to pursue my goal.
One of the main characteristics of self-discipline is the ability to forget instant and immediate gratification and pleasure, in favor of some greater gain or more satisfying results, even if this requires effort and time. I definitely have learned that with food… Self-discipline gives you the power to stick to your decisions and follow them through, without changing your mind.
Gandhi always preached about self-discipline as one of the most important characteristics of a human being, I definitely say that I agree. With self-discipline most anything is possible!
Move to survivel mode
Today it seems like the world is focused on survival mode. And I am convinced that each one of us must understand our own responsibility, each one of us needs to act in a disciplined way to take care of themselves and, as a result, of others.

This ability can be strengthened and developed like any other skill, through training. Yes, you can develop self discipline with special exercises, which you can practice at any time and place.
