When we deliberately engage our senses, we deactivate autopilot.
Notice how your food smells, how it looks. Feel the textures on your tongue and try to taste different flavors. When we’re eating with all our senses, we’re tuning into our body, and we’ll be more attuned to our body’s cues too.
Put it into practice
Grab something simple, like a carrot or an apple. Spend a minute with it, noticing the color and how it feels in your hand. Tune into the sounds, flavors, and feel as you take a bite.
