- Recently, self-regulation has attracted increasing attention at both theoretical levels and practical applications.
Self-regulation, changing one’s responses based on some rules, values or standards, is a crucial key to success in life.
Most self-regulation occurs in three domains : thought, emotion, and impulse control. Therefore, the aim of this article
reviews diverse literature on self-regulation from the perspectives of neurobiology, limited resources, and strength
model. First, the costs and benefits of self-regulation as well as its definition will be provided. From a neurobiological
perspective, self-regulation is mainly involved in top-down control from the prefrontal cortex over subcortical areas related
to thought, emotion, and impulse. Second, acts of self-regulation seem to depend on limited resources, of which
blood glucose is a key energy component. Finally, in terms of strength model, self-regulation can be improved through
targeted exercises over a period of weeks.
