iVillage: The Busy Woman’s Guide to a Better Body

10 of 11

You morph into mindless eating mode whenever your schedule gets crazy. (Which is pretty much all the time!)

“One of the causes of weight gain is not being aware of what you’re eating or how much,” says Jane Ehrman, MEd, CHES, a mind-body medicine specialist at the Center for Integrative Medicine at the Cleveland Clinic. “So many of us are so busy, we’re not eating mindfully. Before each meal, try taking two to three deep breaths to bring your focus into the present,” she advises. This will allow your brain and body to register that it’s being fed. “Whenever you can, take 20 to 40 minutes for a meal, or at the very least, sit somewhere where you’re not distracted by a television, e-mails, etc.,” Ehrman says.
