3 Mindful Eating Tips You Can Do Today


Mindfulness isn’t a new buzz word however, it is more prevalent now than in previous years.


Mindfulness pertains to the basic human ability to be fully present, aware of where we are and what we’re doing, and not overly reactive or overwhelmed by what’s going on around us.


The benefits of mindful eating are:


Reduced stress

Weight loss

Better digestion

Less over-eating

Increased enjoyment 


Ready to give mindful eating a spin?


You don’t actually have to eat any particular foods, you can start today with your next meal!


1. Keeping a food journal/log


This is a tried and true way to increase awareness around what you are eating, how much and how often in the long run and bring more awareness to portions and emotions associated with your eating patterns


2. Presence while eating


Enjoying your food, bite by bite. Taking into consideration the flavors, textures and actually chewing each bite of food is something that helps you experience eating. Be sure to choose foods that are enjoyable and nutritious in order to enhance this experience.


3. Increasing awareness of hunger and satiation


Take time to listen to your body before and after eating. Paying close attention to the sensation of hunger and where you actually feel it in your body. As you are eating tune in your hunger and pay attention to the feeling as it fades and you begin to feel full. Chewing slowly will help you to gauge satiation accurately.


These activities can be quite enjoyable and help you to feel more in control of your eating over time, especially if you are consistent with these practices daily.
