I would do a lot of impulsive shopping earlier. I remain a shopaholic; however, most of the times I do deliberate before buying something. But, I still get dazzled by pretty things in shops. Can I really control my urge to shop?

To extend the argument further, can we control our bodily urges? Today’s article is an interesting discussion on free will. Do we believe that we have control over our actions and our lives? Do we have free will? Interestingly, the belief that we have free will or when we believe more or less in free will is also transitory and ever-changing. On a happy sunny day, we believe we are in control. When in low spirits, we believe that our choices are being controlled.
