Slow Down, Relax, Enjoy Food

Lately, I have had a terrible habit of eating way too fast. I’m downing my meals so quickly, I barely have time to taste them. I’ve noticed that I’m also more hungry lately too, like hungry right after I’ve eaten a full meal. I know it’s because I’m not allowing myself to enjoy what I’m eating and not giving enough time for my stomach to tell my brain that it’s full.

I used to be a better/slower eater, but for some reason, the last few months, I’ve backtracked.

So, just a few minutes ago, I ate a banana for my mid-morning snack, and I s-l-o-w-e-d down and savored the taste and texture of the banana. I’m going to make a conscious effort to try the same with all my meals.
