Mindful eating is a way to enjoy your food more and stay in control of your eating. How, what and why people eat the way they do, and the decisions they make (or not) to do so often lie at the heart of many bad eating habits – sometimes referred to as mindless eating.
Mindless eating can also be thought of as ‘mind full’ eating. You are so distracted by other thoughts and feelings that eating can become random, or a response to habitual unhealthy cues, which can range from sitting down at a movie with a choc-top, eating lunch alone at your computer, or simply reaching for comfort food when feeling sad.
Use this simple chart to help you avoid those traps and to practise eating more mindfully.
