Temporal Effects in Depleting Vs. Replenishing Self-Control

Past research has viewed self-control as an exhaustible resource. The current research shows that initial self-regulation may deplete or augment self-control resources depending on its temporal pattern. When self-regulation becomes harder over time it leads to depletion, whereas when self-regulation becomes easier over time it leads to greater self-control subsequently.
