EAT SLOWLY ! 😀

It’s so simple, you won’t believe it. But it works. At every meal today, eat more slowly than you normally do. Today, and for the next 2 weeks, focus on doing this habit.

How to eat slowly?

At each meal today, take a few extra minutes to simply… pause.

Put your utensils down between each bite. Take a breath.

When you take a bite, notice — and enjoy — the taste and texture of the food.

Then put down those utensils again, and take another breath. Or a sip of water.

Relax.

Wait a few more moments before picking up your utensils again. +++ Repeat.

Quick tip: Try a timer

If you’d like to track your progress with this habit, try simply timing yourself today. Check your watch before you start eating. Or start a timer. When you’re done eating, see how long you took. Now you have a baseline for improvement! Cool.

And if you add only 1 minute per day, by the end of 2 weeks you’ll have added nearly 15 minutes more. Smooth ‘n’ easy.

Help yourself succeed

Eating slowly is one of the most important habits of this program. But in a rushing-around and busy society, it’s hard to remember at first. And changing a habit will take a little extra effort in the beginning. That’s OK.

Here’s how to stay on track.

  1. Make a note of your goal to eat slowly on a Post-it note, your computer, or your phone.
  2. Put it somewhere that you’ll see it often, especially before you eat.
  3. If you’ve used your computer or phone, set a reminder to go off before your regular meal times.
  4. During your meal, try using a timer to check how fast you’re eating.
  5. You can also use an app.

  7. Having a bit more information about what you’re actually doing can help you track your improvement with this habit over the next couple of weeks.
  8. Even if you add only 1 minute per meal, that counts as progress!!
