Mindful Eating

There are numerous benefits to mindful eating including better digestion and nutrient absorption. Slowing down during meals and really focusing on ‘how and why’ you’re eating reduces overeating and binge eating, helps manage weight, cope with chronic eating problems and reduces anxiety about food and body image.
Trust me when I say it’s worth making the effort to learn, practice and embrace it.
