THE REASON PURITAN AMERICA IS SO WELL-ADJUSTED:

Are people with more self-discipline happier?: Why self-control makes your life better, and how to get more of it. (SCOTTY HENDRICKS, 17 September, 2018, Big Think)

Each test showed that people with higher levels of self-control were not only more satisfied with life overall, but also had more positive emotions on a day to day basis. As the authors of the study phrased it: "high self-control does make you happy."

While the types of happiness that people with high levels of self-control experience might be different from the kinds that people with low self-control experience, the long run results are clear. Self-control helps lead to a more satisfying life.

Right and Left are nowhere more unified than in their emotional self-indulgence.
