DAY 1 OF 19
Ask yourself, “How mindfully do I eat?”
Welcome to your 19-day mindful eating challenge! We know that there are a million diets out there, but we’d like to bring it back to the basics with mindful eating.
Mindful eating stresses the importance of focusing on the present moment and being aware of your senses while consuming food. It can help you manage your eating habits and feel better about your body.
Here’s how the challenge works: Each day, we’ll send you an email with a specific challenge designed to coach you on an important aspect of mindful eating. And remember, the point isn’t to change what you’re eating — it’s to change how you’re eating. You won’t have to do any special shopping to complete these challenges!
For today’s challenge: Pick one of your meals and eat like you normally would. After you’re finished, answer these questions in a journal or on your phone:
- How long did it take you to finish your meal?
- Were you multitasking (e.g., watching TV, scrolling through your phone, or finishing up a work project)?
- Are you satisfied with your meal? How do you know when your meals are satisfying?
