A growing body of scientific evidence suggests that mindful eating can help with better digestion, reducing stress, treating eating disorders such as binge eating and even weight loss. Mindfulness in general can be defined as a state of full awareness when you notice things both within and around you and staying at the present moment. Applied to eating, mindfulness implies observing food you eat from many different perspectives including its color, flavor, texture and smell. For that you would definitely need to chew your food slowly and get rid of such modern life distractions as TV, smart phones, reading or eating in front of your computer or on the go. And, lastly, in order to eat mindfully, you would need to be non-judgmental to what you eat and stop with related feelings of guilt or anxiety. Considering crazy life tempo in Chinese megacities like Shanghai, Beijing or Shenzhen mindful eating sounds like an amazing and free (!) cure from quite a few health complications. In this blog post WoowBow presents some useful strategies aiming to ease your food-related mindfulness. Enjoy!
