Helpful tips to make it a habit:

✓ Same time is key. Since you are likely to eat your meals regularly, choose one and savor it at the same time. We recommend lunch meal, as it is likely to be more varied and interesting.
✓ Trigger your mind. Have a picture of a nice meal on your desktop or phone to remind you to savor the food you eat.
✓ Let the app help. Set a reminder before your lunch, so it would ring that it’s time to savor that bite.
✓ Reward yourself. Once you’ve spent a month savoring your meal, go out to a more expensive restaurant and savor every bit of the meal they serve. Enjoy the succulent taste and pleasant texture in every bite.
✓ Celebrate small victories. Every time you perform this habit, congratulate yourself! Say “I’m awesome” or “I’m so cool” out loud and with a smile on your face.

Tips for beginners:

✓ Be mindful. What goes in the sauce? What spices are on the meat or vegetables? How coarsely are the sides chopped? Answer yourself these questions about the meal why chewing on it slowly and feeling every bite.
✓ Mix it up. Try to have varied meals so you would have what to discover each time you eat. A change of place you eat at might help as well.
✓ Educate yourself. Learn about cooking and recipes, if not to do it yourself, but to understand how it is done. Greatest enjoyment comes from things you understand and tastes you can separate.
