I’m a pretty fast-paced lady. I do everything fast: I talk fast, work fast and move fast (I practically scurry down the sidewalk sometimes). This speedy energy has served me very well in many areas of my life, but not at the dinner table. All my life I’ve been a fast eater. This negative pattern has been self-destructive in two ways: I never really taste or savor my food, and I feel anxious around mealtime.

As always, I’ve chosen to teach what I need to learn. In this video I offer three steps to eat more slowly and mindfully. If you already eat slowly, I welcome you to share your own tools in the comments below.

My eating habits offer me an ongoing learning opportunity to tune in, relax and enjoy the moment. Watch now for my tips on how to eat more slowly.

Tapping for Body Confidence and Weight Loss

A dear friend of mine is on the dating circuit, workin’ it on match.com and Tinder. Though she’s had success attracting dates, after a few weeks into the relationship she hits a point where fear totally takes her down. If the guy doesn’t call her exactly when she expects him to, or she doesn’t have the next date lined up in her calendar, she goes to crazy town. Sound familiar? Whether you’re single or attached, this type of control and fear can really wreak havoc in your romantic relationships. But you can let go of this fear and truly enjoy your relationships — from the first date to the fifth anniversary and beyond!
