Do I Get Stronger When I Stop to Eat My Spinach? the Impact of Planned Breaks on Self-Regulation

Results from two experiments show that the inclusion of breaks leads to less strain on self-regulatory resources than no-break processes, contributing to higher likelihood of proceeding with self-regulatory tasks.
