Breaking this habit
The pandemic has changed our eating habits, and we now find ourselves eating while in front of the computer, television, and even while staring at a mobile screen. It’s time to break this habit!
What happens if you don’t?
1. You eat more than what you eat in a regular meal
2. You might not feel satiated
3. You binge on junk food
4. TV commercials entice you to opt for unhealthy food choices
5. You are at risk of becoming obese with unmindful eating habits
What happens if you do?
1. You pay more attention to the food you’re putting into your mouth with the plating, aroma and texture
2. Food becomes more satisfying
3. You easily sense cues that you’ve eaten enough
4. You now choose quality over quantity and eat mindfully
5. You soon start enjoying the process of healthy eating
How does it work?
1. When you turn off the screens and eat, the concept of mindful eating kicks in

4. You begin to realize how much and what you have already eaten
5. You soon become attuned to feeling satiated
