News Bite: Practicing Mindful Eating with Mindful Eat-Mojis
With the increasing use of emojis, communication has taken on a new face (pun intended!).
I find that using emojis in my texts and emails conveys what I am thinking, feeling, or want to say with a simple image or face. Using emojis has really become an art, which got us thinking about how we could use emojis to better convey the concept of mindful eating.
Mindful eating is a process that engages your awareness about how the food you eat affects your feelings, emotions and body and has been shown to decrease binge eating, aid in weight management and positively impact your relationship with food.
Mindful eating promotes:
- Slower eating
- Sitting down (somewhere) to eat meals
- Becoming more aware of hunger levels and cues
