1. When have you been tempted to ignore the needs of your body so that you could accomplish more?

2. When have you been grateful for what your body tries to tell you?

3. When have you tried to control someone else for their own good? What came of that?

4. When have you ended up being grateful that someone made a choice with which you initially disagreed?
