    These are great tips! Thanks for sharing! My favorite is slowing down while you eat because so many of us lead busy lives and we don’t allow enough time for sit-down meals. Sitting down to a meal at the kitchen table away from TVs or computers is a great way to slow down and be free of distractions.

    These are great tips! Thanks for sharing! My favorite is slowing down when you eat because so many of us lead busy lives and and don’t allow enough time to enjoy a meal. By sitting down at the kitchen table to eat away from TVs or computers, that will help to slow things down and be free of distractions.
