life can be busy... i am often guilty of gulping down my lunch or dinner in a matter of minutes... and i have been told that taking a breather during meal time can be a great way to enjoy life little here and there...and enjoying each bite. i am trying lately... and i can feel the benefits.

Eating slow has always been good advice, but one that I have always struggled to keep. First and foremost, I'm a fast eater. If I remember, then I try to slow down, but that usually happens like I'm almost done with the meal..LOL.. Furthermore, I have the habit of multi-tasking when I eat. During my lunch break, I would usually have a book and would be reading while eating. At night, I usually have a movie up while dining. I know, such things lead to mindless eating. Well, I guess, I'm reminded again by this little tidbit of advice that can go a long way in improving my diet and outlook.

My husband and I don't frequent restaurants as much as we used to do because of the gas prices. But, when we do, I love to just sit and reminisce. We've been known to sit for hours and just talk. When we are home, there are so many things to do, the talking gets shuffled around and then it's bed time. So sitting in the restaurant and eating a leisurely meal is wonderful! Wish we could do it more.
