The New York minute seems like it has been condensed to 10 seconds and I find myself eating on the go while balancing little Luca on my hip – unaware that I’m nourishing my body. This morning I slowed down for breakfast and it felt sooo good. While I always intend to eat all meals with Yo Yo Ma playing in the background, it often isn’t reality – but just few seconds before eating a granola bar can shift your mindset [and quality of your digestion].
A mini pause will will allow you to be present with your food and feel satisfied + energized. So try something sweet before you eat:
- take 3 breaths
- light a candle
- say grace
- use beautiful dishes
- make a toast
- put devices away
Bonus points for sitting down with your food – away from your desk.
Oh NY – how very fast you move! I’m still marveling at your speed.
