And it’s true too much of a good thing is still too much. How do you handle the desire to eat it all, and avoid wishing you hadn’t? Here are five plus one of my favorites. Let me know what works for you! Receive my free 3 day mini-detox, good after too much…
1. Slow down, when you eat fast you barely taste what you ate, it takes 20 minutes to register too fast, you’ve eaten the entire thing! Count to 20 during your chewing, savor it, realize the work that’s gone into the preparation, appreciate the ingredients, the growers, marvel on it’s ability to create an amazing experience for you, let me know what happens?
2. Enjoy it, whatever you choose, let it be enjoyed, let go of the “judgement of your choice” appreciate it and than move on. Let it be the experience. Making yourself feel bad will only keep you attached to the experience, and perpetuate the why bother attitude.
4. Drink, water, before you dive in, it’ll satiate you enough to stage off the feeling that you have to eat everything.
5. Enjoy your environment, being too focused on “the food” will take you away from the meaning of why you’re gathered, if you wish you weren’t there, be glad it’s temporary:). Then give yourself the treat, of seeing who at your gathering looks as unhappy as you, see if you can create a connection neither of you have engaged in before. It is true when we reach out to help someone else we are elevated. Let me know what happens.
