Food is your number one priority when you sit down for a meal, and you’re probably well in tune to your natural hunger cues. By minimizing distractions such as music, TV, and bill paying, you free your mind to listen to your stomach, recognizing more easily when you feel full, which prevents overeating. Progress on your mindful eating journey by paying special attention to how other dining settings--eating with friends, restaurants, large portions--affect your choices. Constant reassessment is the key to long-term success.
