The ability to stabilize thoughts might also be a reflection of what we eat. From the three classical books on Yoga (Hatha Yoga Pradipika, Gheranda Samhita and Siva Samhita) we learn some foods are considered toxic to a Yoga practitioner like: bitter, salty, spicy and sour foods, fish and meat, intoxicating liquors, garlic, onion, re-heated foods, dry foods and vegetables that cause burning sensations.
While all of the following are considered beneficial: milk, butter and ghee (clarified butter), sugar, honey and sweet foods, vegetables, fruit, beans, grains, roots, seeds, and pure water. That said - if we eat poorly we will suffer in some way. We can accept that we aren't perfect, but to continuallly have bad eating habits has consequences.
