Change Your Food Habits
The pace of life we live pushes us to go faster and faster in everything we do, and that includes food.
Bad habits Mealtime
We have learned to do several things at once, yes, it is quite a feat, but perhaps not the best choice, and we should focus on each thing that we do to make sure we do it with all your senses and best. This approach has also influenced the way we eat, and again this is not a good idea to perform several tasks at once.
When we are eating while we answer emails, just an outstanding job, we review the exam, consult something online … we’re not focused on what we are actually doing it is: Eat.
This kind of practice is not healthy and can develop other problems. When we are doing more things besides eating is not easy to cater to signal that we are full, and the easiest way is to eat more.
If this behavior is normal, you can be doing to the idea of the problems that can be derived from here …
Examples of “What Not To Do When Comes”
- Eating while you are completing other tasks
- Keep eating when you’re already full
- Eat anyway. Eating alone, without heating the food, bad sitting in an inappropriate place like a table and a chair … Even if you eat Tupper, you can eat with conscience.
- Eating trying to take refuge in food, emotionally.
Examples of “Eating Awareness”
- Focus when eating and devote only to eat.
- Be prepared to receive signals that you are full.
- Eating with others in one place and a suitable environment.
- Eating responding to the hunger signal not to anxiety.
Eating with Conscience
The idea behind eating with awareness is completely focus on what you are doing at all times. Although it should be what everyone did naturally, as we said at the beginning it is easiest to find people who are fully subject to the rush. So that neither the food nor the other aspects of your life you are living with mindfulness (English concept of living with awareness).
The Mindfulness helps us develop awareness of our thoughts and emotions, while the world around us. This ability helps us to reconnect our bodies with our minds
Although it may seem very abstract and spiritual concept, if not relearn to eat focused on the task at hand will be much easier to eat more, increasing stress levels not enjoy the food …
Application of Mindfulness to eat
The average time needed for the body to send the signal that has been satiated, are 20 to 30 minutes. Most of us do not use so long to eat so do not stop when we receive the signal, or continue or stop eating when food is finished without natural feeling of satiety.
Eat slower, share the meal time in the company, chews enough
Food is not a sentimental refuge
Although we associate food with our emotions, if we follow this system can really be a problem. Creates awareness of the food gasoline for your body, every meal is intended to nurture and meet health objectives.
The food does not have to be just a pleasure for the palate because otherwise, if you eat well, this is the easiest way to develop problems with food
Pay attention to the details
Is not that when you have guests at home spend some time setting the table, presentation, dishes and all the details? And you do not deserve the same as your guests? While the first thing you’ll think you do not have time to make many preparations every day, this is just an example that you do not deserve less mountains but not a party every day.
The idea is to find a happy medium between the preparation of a celebration and eat anything in a tupperware cold sitting in the car seat
Worth spending time in an exclusive food preparation, to generate an appropriate environment and focused solely on eating food that task. The main objective, to obtain greater satisfaction and help achieve your health goals.
