How do you make decisions? Do you always act on emotion or impulse? Probably not. You went to work today or drove the kids to school even though you didn’t “feel” like it. Most mature decisions are based on principle, purpose and plan.
Principle tells us to tell the truth even when it would be easy to be dishonest. Purpose makes us spend time with our kids even when we’re too tired. If we plan adequately, we show up to our appointments. Yes, emotions are important but they cannot govern us.
So how do you decide what and when to eat? Do you eat because you’re anxious, angry or bored? Do you eat too much when you’re not even hungry?
