7 Tips for Mindful Eating

7 Tips for Mindful Eating | Reclaiming Yesterday

We’re all so busy that sometimes eating is just an afterthought. But if we want to have a healthy, happy relationship with our food, it’s important that we work to practice more mindful eating.

I have something seriously delicious to tell you guys about today, but first I want to catch up a bit.

I haven’t been posting to the blog quite as frequently as I have in the past. That’s because I’m always working on finding balance—both in my body and in my life. I’ve been doing more things outside of the blog that make me really happy, like yoga, reading, and just hanging out.
