Mindfulness, Self Restraint, and Regret

How much of life is lived on "automatic pilot?"
Being mindful of what we are doing and of our surroundings can increase control while adding enormously to the enjoyment of each minute.
It can also strengthen our self-restraint as we become more conscious of what we are doing. I can't recall who said it but the observation that self-restraint is better than regret is not only correct on its own but it also serves as part of a process:
Mindfulness strengthens Self-Restraint which in turn reduces Regret.
