What Is Mindful Eating
You may be familiar with the term 'mindfulness,' but are you aware this can be applied to our eating habits? Mindful eating uses the act of mindfulness or being present, to help overcome eating problems in our increasingly busy lives. The goal is to shift focus from external thinking about food to exploring (and enjoying) the eating experience. It is not a diet and is focused around developing a new mindset around food.
How Does Mindful Eating Help
Mindful eating helps you distinguish between emotional and physical hunger. It also increases your awareness of food-related triggers and gives you the freedom to choose your response to them.
