LTGL Challenge 2 What new habit you wish to develop?

Saturday, March 02, 2013

It is something that I feel is extremely important to healthy eating I need to start eating all my meals at the table and not in front of the TV, or sitting at my desk, and standing up at the kitchen cabinet, or in fact eating in my car while I am driving

    This is a great way to concentrate on what you are eating and not being distracted by the TV.

    Good luck with your goal! That seems like a challenging one (My dining table is being used as a desk).

    This is a hard one! I don't drive much, but I am guilty of everything else you mentioned. Good luck!

    This is a good goal, and with our hectic lives a difficult one to crack - I'm sure you can do it, especially if hubby goes along with it too. All the best

    This is so important! It's the silly little things like this that make a huge difference. We recently bought a new kitchen table and have a "no devices" rule, meaning no cells or laptops or ipads, whatever. Now, we talk more. I love it.
Good luck to you on being a table-eater!

    I wish you luck with that! I've been thinking about the same topic lately. We (hubby and I) eat all our meals in front of the TV, and I find it's impossible to eat "mindfully" that way. Great goal! Let us know how it works out!

    Great new goal. Eating at the table makes you focus on what you are eating..Not on the tv or other distractions.

    This is a good idea. I am bad about eating in front of the TV also.

    You've got a good point. I do feel need to eat at table..not infront of TV..but that is a very tough habit to break. If we pay more attentions to what we are eating, probably we can have appreciation for foods and we can enjoy more. Thanks for brought it up on this topic.

    Oh gosh Linda, I do all of the above!!! That is a really good goal to set. I would love a more set family time, but everybody is always so busy, and I end up getting too tired to even bother... what an eye opener!! - thanks for sharing emoticon

    Excellent habit to break --- I'm just as guilty emoticon

We need to take time to sit down, relax and taste what we're eating - not just scarf it down!!

    I used to eat in my car a lot. Yesterday I looked over on my drive to work when we were stopped at a red light and the woman next to me was literally stuffing a McDonald's breakfast sandwich into her mouth - it was quite something. To be honest, I was a bit horrified - then I remembered that I used to do that. I am glad that is one habit I was able to break.

Good luck with this - eating while distracted can't be good, right?

    Yes, a good one. Sitting at the table to eat gives your mind a bit of a break as well. Good luck with this one. emoticon
