Harvard Health Tips
Savor your food
Food offers comfort and pleasure as well as nourishment. Gulping down fast food while changing lanes on the freeway, however, offers none of these benefits. Instead, take the time to savor each bite. This is called mindful eating. To practice it, start by setting a place for yourself and sit down. Chew each mouthful of food and don't rush to get to the next one. Pay attention to what you're eating.
