Would you like to eat less, slower or enjoy your food more? Eating mindfully can help you slowing down time and enjoying the now.

Routine

Fixed eating hours ensure a healthy daily routine. Once you got into a routine, your body will tell you when it is time to eat. Eating slowly contributes to a proper working of your metabolism. That is because this way your body can use all of its energy to digest the food. And on top of that, you will also feel satisfied for longer, which makes you eat less.

Mindful eating

Mindful eating starts at the moment you choose to focus on what you are going to eat. Sit down and choose to eat something you are in the mood for.

  1. The first step is to observe your food. Observe how it looks, how it smells and the texture. How does your body respond? Are you craving it even more?
  2. The second step is to eat it. Take into account how you bring the food to your mouth and how your mouth absorbs it. Are you chewing it? How does the food feel on your teeth and gum line? What is your tongue doing? Involve all of your senses.
  3. The last step is evaluation. How did it go? Was it easy, stupid or boring? Were you impatient? Did you eat less? These are things you normally will not realize, but now you can give it some attention. You will learn more about yourself, your body and the food you are eating.
