While Thanksgiving may not be the healthiest eating day of the year, it is a good reminder of our close relationship with food! As a student, it’s easy to forget how much eating habits can affect mood, performance, and overall health. Here are a few tips for positive, mindful eating:
- Develop good eating habits. Positive habits are essential to maintaining a healthy diet.
- Try eating at a slower pace, which gives your stomach time to inform your brain that you’re full.
- Don’t skip meals, which puts you at risk for a slowing metabolism.
- Snacking is a huge culprit. Try some of these healthier snack alternatives.
