I like the idea of composure. Heros and heroines in all exciting movies show composure -- even under the most adverse conditions. Those ficticious people inspire me to be strive for composure in my life.
Nobody really wants to be that freakin' out person in the movies who loses it and needs to get slapped back into sanity, right?
So what if we started thinking about cultivating composure, instead of will-power, around our eating? Would it change how you approach meals and snacks? Would it lead you to make different decisions if you had that composed hero/heroine as your guide?
Would you chew a little slower? Sit a little straighter (or sit instead of scarffing your food over the sink)?
