Hurry Up & Wait


We live in an extremely fast paced world.  Many of us go nonstop from the moment our feet hit the ground, not even taking a break to eat. We eat in the car, at a desk or event standing, shoveling it all in.  Slowing down during meal times is imperative to moving forward on your journey towards optimal health.  I present to you one of my favorite and most inexpensive ways to slow down when eating: chopsticks. Using chopsticks at meal times really forces me to slow down, because there is just so much I can pick up with them.  Although I have really improved my skills using them throughout the years, it always works to get me to slow down.  One rule though: the plate stays on the table or at least away from your mouth.  No “shoveling” the food in.  How do you slow down?
