Cultivate virtue for a blissful and fruitful life.
Temperance is one of the seven virtues.
One can cultivate temperance by practicing self-control and fasting from food, drugs, alcohol, and anything you feel a lack of control over, even video games. We overconsume to compensate for our perception of not having enough in some area. Healing from past traumas, forgiving those who hurt us is the first step in temperance. Trusting that all is well and trusting in the abundance of God can remove the desire to hoard food or escape from reality into drugs.
The opposite of temperance is gluttony, one of the seven deadly sins.
