30 Day Nutrition Challenge: Day 9

30 Day Nutrition Challenge
DAY 9 –
Practice Mindful Eating
Sitting down at a table to eat a meal slowly, mindfully, without distraction is an important habit that is slipping away in our fast-paced society.  Today’s goal is to eat breakfast, lunch, and dinner, sitting down (ideally at a table), with no distractions (no TV, cell phone, laptop, magazine, Facebook, or other distractions).  This means no standing up while eating, no eating on the couch while watching TV, or eating in the car.  Be present, be mindful, and savour the smell, taste, and texture of your food.  Stop when you feel satisfied.

DAY 9 – Success Tracker
