For best results, think LESS, not more What do you do when you rst get into your car? Well, hopefully, you put your seatbelt on before you start driving. You know that if you were to hit something at 100 mph, you couldn't possibly brace yourself against the dashboard enough to save yourself. You're going too fast, and the force is too strong.

Hunger is not an emergency. Here's what to do when you feel hungry, rushed, or just plain irritable. You’ve just spent two hours waiting to go through security and you’re finally in the airport terminal. You speed-walk to your gate and see that your flight is just getting ready to board. You’re starving. You don’t have time to sit down and eat anything, and you’re not sure if they’re serving food on your flight. Suddenly you smell the unmistakable perfume of doughnuts. Ten mi
