You may be familiar with the concept of “mindfulness” and “mindful eating”, and here’s what it means – and why being more mindful around meals will make a huge difference to how great you look and feel.
Mindfulness is simply the practice of paying attention (in a non-judgemental way) to an activity. It’s a very effective method to manage stress: one study found regular mindfulness meditation actually changes the structure of the brain, creating more neural connections, which might protect us from depression and dementia.
Ultimately, being more mindful gives you a different perspective on your thoughts and feelings and helps you approach situations in a calmer, more thoughtful way. And being mindful when eating can have a positive impact on your physical and mental health, without requiring too much effort!
