Do you stress whilst eating? (Stress here means gulping your food down, of course, but also watching tv, reading a newspaper or magazine, doing something on your phone are stressers!)
Whatever you do besides only eating when you should, the result is a stressed body with unhealthy habits. If there is one thing you should try this weekend, it is to have an awareness of what you eat. First of all, sit down while you eat. Relax, take a few deep breaths, look at the food, smell it, taste it. What colours do you see? Shapes? What can you smell? What is the consistency like? Taste?
In eating mindfully, you train your body to cooperate with your mind, resulting in healthy feelings of hunger and satiety. Once you engage all your senses while eating, you will enjoy your food more, as well as the reward system in your brain working more effectively. You also give your body a chance to make the most out of the nutrition you give it. A win-win, if you ask me!
Are you able to go through a meal without focusing on anything else but what you eat? Try it at least once this weekend and let me know in the comments below how it went, what your experiences are and if you felt anything different!
