A fork, a plate, a chair

A client recently shared a brilliant mental checklist she uses each time she eats something. “Am I using a fork and a plate, and am I sitting in a chair?” In other words, she tries to eat mindfully.

Of course we all eat on the run sometimes. It’s not always practical to sit down for a meal or a snack, but you will eat less, make better food choices, and enjoy your meal more if you eat with intention. The mental checklist – a fork, a plate, a chair — can help you remember to stop and make time to nourish yourself.
