It’s only by bringing a habit into your conscious awareness that you can observe what it’s doing, how it empowers and serves you or doesn’t.

Jeff Olson

 

What is mindful eating? Contrary to popular belief, it’s not just about chewing slowly and paying attention to flavors. It's an approach that goes beyond what's on your plate. Mindful eating is deeply rooted in being present, appreciating each sensation, and building a connection between your mind and body.

The research shows that when you eat and drink mindfully, you benefit from:

  • Reduced anxiety and weight gain
  • Improved emotional eating and binge eating behaviors[HH1]
  • A nonjudgmental attitude towards food
  • A higher diet quality and healthier snack choices
  • Improved eating behaviors, such as recognizing fullness and controlling overeating

Over the next 10 days, the goal of this challenge is to turn your relationship with food into a source of joy, nourishment, and balance. We’ll do this through simple, manageable changes that — through repetition and dedication — may someday become healthy habits.

Get ready to discover the magic of mindful portions — where each bite is a step toward a healthier, more harmonious you.

Although this challenge concluded on March 22, we welcome you to try it with a friend or colleague. Get started here.
