Mindful Meals Make A Great Study Break

The latest innovative “roundtable” at the Harvard School of Public Health is not the typical panel discussion on cancer or air pollution that you might expect—its actually a roundtable.  Born from the work of Lilian Chung, the school recently designated a cafeteria table that is dedicated entirely to mindful eating. It’s a powerful concept; slowing down, being fully present and using all of your senses to consume your food.

If you’re curious to learn more about mindful eating, check out Chung’s video in which she talks about her book, Savor: Mindful Eating, Mindful Life, and explains the seven practices of mindful eating:

  1. Honor the Food

  2. Engage all of your senses

  3. Be mindful of portions

  4. Chew!

  5. Eat slowly

  6. Do Not Skip Meals

  7. Eat a plant-based diet
