Mindful eating encourages wiser food choices and can promote healthier digestion. Being mindful of the food you eat helps keep you feeling full with less food, and it can inspire you to reduce or even eliminate unhealthy habits you may have around food and eating.
Here are our top tips for becoming a mindful eater:
- Slow down and savour each bite. Take the time to appreciate the flavours, textures, and aromas of your food.
- Avoid distractions while eating, such as screens or multitasking. Instead, focus on the experience of eating and listen to your body’s hunger and fullness cues.
- Eat when you’re truly hungry and stop when you’re comfortably satisfied. Pay attention to your body’s signals and respect its needs.
- Practice portion control. Use smaller plates and bowls, and be mindful of serving sizes to prevent overeating. Remember, it’s about quality, not quantity.
