“Being present with your meal helps us enjoy our eating experiences and listen to our body’s internal signals that guide our eating,” says Alexis Conason, Psy.D. over email. Mindful eating — which includes savoring your food with all your senses, pausing between bites, and avoiding distractions — has been shown to help people have better eating habits and have a healthier relationship with food, according to Harvard Health.
