Willpower

April 2, 2008

New research seems to show that we have a depletable store of willpower, but we can also strengthen our efficiency in using that store (which might be glucose): discussed in a NYT op-ed, Tighten Your Belt, Strengthen Your Mind. When I read this earlier today I had some vague notion of writing about fasting and will power, but now I just don't have it in me. Lack of glucose? No, lack of Muse. My blood sugar should be just fine, still pretty full after a good dinner of turkey chili.
