How did things go yesterday with the new slow-eating strategies? Were you able to make any of your meals or snacks longer than the day before? Even the smallest bit of change in this area will add up to big results later on. So even if it was a small change, pat yourself on the back for doing a great job! Continue working on these eating slowly strategies moving forward. Remember, we are going to add new habits but we need not to forget the old ones!

 

Today, focus on how your body feels before you eat. Bring awareness to what you are thinking and feeling both mentally and physically before you eat a meal or snack. Do you feel rumbling in your stomach? A feeling of hunger in your mouth? Is your brain or watch telling you that it's time to eat? There are a million different things that can cause a person to eat but having awareness of the feelings from your body will ultimately help you the most. More on this in the next couple of days, but, for now, simply try to bring awareness to your pre-eating feelings. Write them down if you think it would help you! The more information, the better.
