What are three mindful eating habits? Mindful eating takes practice. Try to eat more slowly, chew thoroughly, remove distractions, and stop eating when you’re full.
What are examples of mindful eating practices?
- Take small bites. It’s easier to taste food completely when your mouth isn’t full. Put down your utensil between bites.
- Chew thoroughly. Chew well until you can taste the essence of the food.
- Eat slowly. If you follow the advice above, you won’t bolt your food down.
