Eat slowly

Although our lives are busy and our days are often rushed, it is nevertheless still very important that we allow ourselves an adequate amount of time to eat. Savour each bite and eat slowly so that food is properly chewed before swallowing.

Avoid eating whilst you are working, whether it’s sending emails, reading or having a conversation with someone. Rather take this time out for yourself, no matter how long or short it may be.
