Stop Being a Busy Bee.

Monday, October 01, 2012

My life coach says I am to busy eating and working/playing on the computer, eating and doing housework, eating and doing 14 other things at the same time, and to knock it off.

My reply is that I have million things to get done. Her reply, really and why are you not getting them done?

Lesson here to learn is that I have to prioritize, organize and remember that there's no reason to bring my busy life into my meals.

If I want to be sure to take off some unwanted pounds, I have to make a new rule for myself and stop doing other things while eating.

One simple way of helping myself to eat mindfully, is to eat while I am sitting. Never eat while standing in front of the fridge or preparing a meal. When I eat while standing up, whether I am cooking, snacking, or picking, I won't feel satisfied. Put my food on a plate, sit down and enjoy.

    Good advice. It brings to mind the old joke that whatever you eat standing up doesn't count. And there are no calories in food you eat off from someones else's plate!

    Good suggestion. Don't just sit down to eat, but eat at the kitchen/dining table which is cleared of anything except food. Prioritizing is something we have to do--I know I spend way too much time on the computer and can always find an excuse for not doing the things I need to get done! emoticon
