4 Simple Tips on Mindful Eating…….


What is Mindful Eating?

Mindful eating is a way to bring awareness to your experiences with food. Practice  helps your brain and body communicate so you know when you’re hungry, satisfied, or full. When eating mindfully, you pay attention to what your body is trying to say and take notice of the smaller actions you might not normally notice. This means taking your time to be fully aware of what you’re consuming, only eating when you’re hungry, and stopping when you’re full try our 4 simple tips on mindful eating and see if it helps.

Mindless eating is often associated with obesity. When curbing mindless habits, you can eliminate bloating and indigestion – plus potentially be at a healthier weight.

4 Simple Ways to Start Today

  1. Am I hungry?

When reaching for a snack, try asking yourself that question.

 If you answer no, then ask, “Why am I hungry?”
Are you bored? Thirsty? Tired? Upset? These can often be confused for hunger.

 If you answer yes, then ask, “How hungry am I?”
Assess how much food you really need and stop eating when you’re not hungry…not when you’re full!

Helpful tip! Take 5
 Can’t figure out your level of hunger, take five minutes and distract yourself before turning to food.
Try this hunger scale to see how hungry you really are.

  1. Stop with the distractions

Are you using a phone, computer, or TV while eating, if you are not listening to your body telingl you when it’s full. During your next meal, take a break from the electronics and only focus on the food you’re consuming. Notice the look, texture, smell, and tastes!

  1.  TrySlowing down

It takes 20 minutes for our stomach to receive the signal that we’re full.  Putting down your fork between bites and drinking a glass of water as you’re eating helps with mindful eating.

  1.  Help Manage your environment

Controlling food temptations around you can be another easy way to create a mindful eating habit.

  • Put away part of a meal before you start eating – this will help you prevent overeating, and leaves you with leftovers for the next day!
  • Take out a portion of the food, instead of eating right out of the container
  • Use different sized dishes to appropriately match a meal
    • Salad plate for dinner
    • Smaller dish for ice cream

Try Mindful Extras

Switch things up by adding these mindful eating hacks to your next meal:

  • Use a fork with your non-dominant hand
  • Scrap the fork and knife altogether…give chopsticks a shot instead!
  • When socializing around a table of food, hold your drink in your dominant hand so you can’t easily grab food

Seaweed Sleepwear helps protect Skin

Just had to share the new seaweed sleepwear from Leticia Credidio her new seaweed sleepwear and how it protects  the skin.

Leticia Credidio is an Italian-Japanese Brazilian born designer based in East London and Milan. Leticia worked at the intersection of design and social change for more than 12 years, and after experiencing the detrimental health impacts of overwork and a lack of sleep, she decided to put her creative energy into establishing conscious sleepwear.

Sustainability Starts From Within

Having worked with many great NGOs and environmental projects, Leticia realised that sustainability starts from within. She made the decision to create a sustainable sleepwear brand that has its core mission to unleash the power of sleep as it’s the essential ingredient for a life better-lived.

Together with her production team every decision they make, from the materials they use to where they produce the garments, pushes the boundaries of care and consideration. All products are organic and certified by the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS).

This summer Leticia Credidio launched the Ocean collection. Not only perfect for lounging and very long breakfasts, it is also a homage to our beloved oceans and coral reefs. This limited-edition collection is created of sustainable and certified seaweed fabrics that are made and weaved in Germany (SeacellTM/OEKO-TEX–TEX Micromodal). A process not taken lightly, yet Leticia persisted on using this environmentally friendly material, that is good for your skin as well.

Protecting the Skin with Seaweed

The unique properties of seaweed helps to protect our skin against the harmful environmental influences, which we are exposed to in our daily lives. The fabric releases a soft hydration on skin. So you can sleep and lounge beautifully, and wake boldly. Congratulations Leticia on such beautiful inovation and design.
