How do you eat mindfully?
To eat mindfully, you need to give eating your full attention. That means no watching TV, no reading and absolutely no eating at your desk while you try and bash out a bit more work over your lunch break. That doesn’t mean you need to shut yourself away to eat, as sharing a meal with others is actually considered a good thing as conversations don’t tend to suck our attention in the same way TV does, for example.
So eat with no distractions. Eat slowly, taking notice of the flavours and textures of what you’re eating. Listen to your body’s hunger cues and eat until you’re full, but no more.
