Mindful Eating 1

Are you a mindful eater or a mindless eater? If you’re anything like me, you likely have a busy life and so many things on your to-do list that sometimes, eating can feel like a task to check off the list. Eating mindfully plays a huge role in cultivating a healthy free life, so let’s explore the impact of mindful eating and mindless eating on the mind, body, and soul.

Benefits of Mindful Eating:

Join me in this episode of Healthy Free Life Show as I shed light on the scientific research behind mindless eating, obesity, and weight loss. You’ll also learn how mindful eating benefits the body, helping to prevent weight gain, decrease binge eating and emotional eating, decrease stress, and more!

Plus, I share a simple practice, along with a prayer, you can use to start eating more mindfully during your next meal.

 

“When you learn to eat mindfully, you’re going to be able to replace those mindless, negative food emotions… with positive food experiences. Then, you are in control and food is no longer controlling you.” – Katrina

    This was a good reminder. I don’t really eat fast or slow but I do need to be more mindful of what I am eating.
