It's so easy to eat when we aren't actually hungry. Perhaps you're bored, stressed or upset.
Our emotions play a big part in eating which leads us to eat more food that our bodies actually need.
In this FB LIVE, I explain exactly what "mindful eating" is. (As opposed to "mindless eating").
Why mindful eating is great if you want to lose weight.
And how to start your mindful eating journey.
Please remember that mindful eating is a learnt behaviour. Think of it like learning to play the piano.
You couldn't beat yourself up if you weren't a concert pianist overnight so don't expect to be "perfect" at it straight away.
Learn to observe yourself from a place of kindness. No guilt! The first step is just to figure out what's going on!
