Practice mindful eating to relax your body and to avoid eating too quickly. When you eat too fast, you are more likely to experience heartburn and indigestion. When you take the time to slow down and chew your food, you are also less likely to overeat. Try and count to 30 as you chew your food, then swallow. This gives your body the time to digest food at a healthy pace and sends a message to your brain to let you know you are satiated and full.
