It is still a little difficult slowing down eating to 20 minutes. Let's see, how many distractions have I been allowing to take my attention away from my food? Television, what is it like to eat without watching Hannibal bite someone's face off.--television off. Computer, I have actually put my food down and went over to the computer to fulfill a thought I had.--computer off. Windows, I love to hear the birds chirp. More than that I love to watch them fly around.--windows closed. Very interesting to actually sit and admire the sight and taste of my food. While concentrating on my food I had not realized that more than 20 minutes had passed.
I had a boss once that took forever to eat and made an interesting sound when she did eat. I asked her about it. She told me that she was actually sucking the flavor from her food as she ate it. I tried it a few times and found that I enjoyed the flavor of the food much more than just putting it in my mouth and chewing and swallowing it. Great observations on your part. Really something to think about. 1461 days ago
