I don’t know about you but I used to have a habit of not chewing my food and eating really really fast. Do you ever feel like that? Well in this article I’m going to talk about some practical ways for you to improve your digestion simply by eating slower.

It wasn’t until we did a show with Dr. Steven Hines and then ordering his Learn How to Treat Yourself DVD that I really understood the power that chewing has on your digestion.

I used to get indigestion a lot and I think it was because I’d scarf meals down so fast. Making green smoothies has been a challenge also because we think of these as liquids but because green smoothies contain fiber, they’re quite deceptive.

I have had the WORST indigestion before when I would gulp down my green smoothie too fast. I’d put avocado in there, greens, frozen berries super food green powders and my body just didn’t know what to do with it all.

As an aside I’ve had great success with my indigestion by using the Q-Laser. I’m still kind of weirded out about how effective that device is. 🙂

So here are some ways you can slow down, take a deep breath and enjoy your meals in a more peaceful setting.

Pray

Taking a moment to give thanks and offering gratitude and appreciation for your meal is key. Even if you’re eating a snack, alone in the kitchen. Take a second and thank God for your food. I even thank the animals and plants that are giving up their lives so that I can live. It’s sacred, all of it.

Eat More Often

If you eat more often you’ll be less likely to be ravenous when it does come time to eat. I don’t know about you but if I let my blood sugar levels drop and don’t eat for a long time, I’d surgically implant the food directly into my stomach if I could.

By eating more often it doesn’t put you into that panic state when you’re eating. You don’t feel like you have to eat fast just to feel satisfied. If you eat when you’re slightly hungry, you’ll eat less (which is always a good thing).

Don’t Talk

For me talking while I’m eating causes a lot of issues. If somebody is talking “at” me I can chew while they’re speaking. But if it’s an actual conversation and they ask me something, (which invariably happens at the exact moment I shovel a bunch of food into my pie hole) then I feel like I have to rush through the chewing process because I don’t want to keep them waiting my response.

Do you ever feel that way?
alk after the meal or even sit in silence o
So I would rather tr listen to something soothing while the meal is happening.

Use Chop Sticks

Gabby Bernstein is a fan of using chopsticks while you eat because it mechanically forces you to slow down while you eat. The slower you eat the more you’ll chew. At least that’s the theory. You could also you use less dominant hand while you eat to force your brain to create new neuro pathways which should help bring some mindfulness into your meal time.

Block Out More Time Than You Need

And last but not least this one is the most important. Why do we rush our meals? Because we feel like we have no time to eat. This one principle can have the biggest impact on your digestion but it’s also the most challenging to implement.

Why?

Because it actually forces you to change how you structure your day. It’s somewhat like meditation in that you’re wrestling your ego to the flood and telling it that what you’re doing right now is the most important thing you could be doing. It’s like telling your ego to shut up, sit down and go in the corner while I do what’s most important in this moment.

I’ve found that by blocking out more time than you need to eat, you’ll be less likely to finish your meal quickly and move on to the next thing.

So what about you? I’d love to hear your comments below or joint our forum to discuss how you create more mindfulness into your eating habits.
