Meaning of Moderation

What is Moderation:

Moderation is called the action and effect of moderating. It refers to a way of acting, acting, behaving and expressing oneself with measure and sobriety, without falling into excesses, but always with good sense and sanity. The word, as such, comes from Latin moderation, moderatiōnis.

Moderation is a very important value that implies not overdoing things, always maintaining balance and living well. In this sense, it is related to sobriety and stability of customs.

Moderation allows us to live a stable personal, family, emotional and work life, without excess. In addition, moderation in character, words, and actions is important for us to maintain harmonious relationships with others.

Moderation is considered a virtue that implies balance and where the ideas of measure and prudence are fundamental. In fact, for Aristotle moderation resided in the balance in the pleasures.

Likewise, moderation is the greatest of the cardinal virtues, as opposed to hubris, which represents excess, excess, pride and arrogance. Hence the Catholic religion associates it with the theological virtue of temperance, which avoids worldly vices and passions.

In politics, moderation is a way of acting and acting that tries to be balanced, equanimous, that is located in the center, without falling into extremism or radicalism. Moderation is thus conservative, conciliatory and reformist, and never revolutionary.

Synonyms of moderation would be: moderation, restraint, sobriety, temperance; reserve, circumspection; sanity, good sense, judgment. Antonyms, on the other hand, would be: immoderation, imbalance, excessiveness or foolishness.

In English, the word moderation can be translated as moderation. For instance: "Everything in moderation is fine”(Everything in moderation is good).
