So many of us lose our way because we live our lives on autopilot, never paying attention to what we're doing or saying, thinking or feeling.
This is especially true when it comes to eating.
It's way too easy to eat two or three doughnuts as you drive to work in the morning, and even easier to halfheartedly devour a large order of fries while you're balancing a spreadsheet or preparing a report at work.
To prevent this, try not to eat while you're watching TV or working at your computer.#Instead, practice 'mindful eating'.
When you sit down to a meal, you should be focused on how your body feels and each bite that you take.
By doing this, you're allowing yourself to feel true appreciation for the food you eat, and you'll ultimately develop a more mindful approach to eating.
