I think I really need to work on getting back to Mindful eating. I have started to just aimlessly eat. As you sit down to eat, mindfully eat, ask:
Are You. . .
Tuned into your hunger and appetite?
Focused on the food and how you feel as you eat?
Aware of the aroma and appearance of the food?
Eating slowly and savoring each bite?
Chewing thoroughly and concentrating on the taste, texture and temperature?
Checking your level of fullness and degree of satiety?
Relaxed and comfortable as you enjoy the eating experience?
In other words. . . . don't just shovel it it. Slow down and enjoy.
