Eating Psychology Coach Kathy Elkind of Elkind Nourishment knows that the holidays can be one of the toughest times of the year to slow down and savor our foods. She offers the following advice:
Carry the practice of Mindfulness with you through the holidays.
Mindfulness will help you notice what you are feeling.
If we do not feel our discomforts we will end up eating them.
We are all human SO feel the discomforts.
Comfort yourself with kindness and love (hand over the heart).
And savor the pleasures of this time of year.
