#2: Practice mindful eating
In today’s world, we are used to being on the go and multitasking as much as possible. However, this has diluted much of our life experiences. By dividing our attention constantly, we can’t focus on or enjoy what is directly in front of us.
Mindful eating is a powerful practice that encourages people to take a step back from their busy schedules and live in the moment, even if it’s just for 10 minutes. In addition, mindful eating requires us to become more in tune with our body. The benefit is a healthier relationship with food.
So, next time you feel hungry, take that as a cue to sit down and think about your meal. Find a regular spot to eat, chew slowly, and consider all the work that went into that meal. If you are religious or spiritual, you can also offer a prayer before and after your meal.
