A friend once shared a tip from a dietitian he worked with as a child. They said: don't take another bite until you've finished chewing the last.
Overeating is often associated with eating too fast. Our body can't keep up to let us know we're feeling full.
Ever bite off more than you can chew?
Work and food are the same. There's a certain amount we need to stay energized. When we discover what we enjoy, we crave it. We want more. And more. And more. Until suddenly, we've had too much. Then, the reverse happens, we get tired, sick, unmotivated. We want nothing to do with the work or food that once brought us joy.
Slow down. Experience every moment before taking another bite.
