My wellness students and I explore what it takes to change a habit, and then we all make a resolution to change one habit for a week and document our progress. This past week, I vowed to not eat any meals in front of a screen. I noticed it was my habit for lunch, when no one was around to eat with, to whip out my phone and scroll. And I noticed I barely registered what I was eating. And I didn’t like it.

So this week, I am attending to my meals. And I have to say, it is nice to actually experience what I am eating. Even my peanut butter and banana sandwich on cinnamon raisin bread was scrumptious when I brought my full attention to it.

Give it a try. Put your technology away and use your senses to completely experience your meal.
