The holiday season is in full swing!
Busy schedules leave many of us feeling rushed and exhausted. Unfortunately, constant exposure to decadent treats can lead to feelings of shame and guilt around food choices. These feelings can interfere with our ability to enjoy the holiday season and time with friends and family. Rather than engaging these feelings, choose to eat mindfully: free from judgment, in the present moment, slowly, with intention, and without distractions. These Cranberry Cookies from our bakery is a fun way to celebrate the season. What is your favorite holiday treat?
Here are some helpful tips for mindful eating:
· Put your phone down, turn off other devices
· Chew thoroughly
· Notice your thoughts, feelings, and physical sensations
· Acknowledge any response to your food
· Pay attention to hunger and fullness
