Eating in front of the TV and computer
Tuesday, September 22, 2020
The worst and hardest habit for me to break is eating in front of the TV or computer. My husband and I usually watch the news while we are eating dinner and I have been eating while watching game shows. I know that they say to not do this but I am finding it difficult to stop. Once or twice I have been able to sit at the kitchen table and eat my meals but I go right back to in front of the TV or computer and eat. I work at home three days a week and I eat my snacks and lunch while working. My mind is thinking about eating and what I am working on so I don't really mindfully eat. I do measure my food but sometimes I feel like I put the food in my mouth but don't really taste it because I am so occupied with what I am working on.
Starting today, I will be sure to eat at the table and take time for myself. Everything else can wait for a few minutes.
