Often the simplest things can offer us the quickest rewards. One such idea is that of keeping a food diary for a week. That is noting down the things we eat throughout the day. This is particularly beneficial when you include mood. Noting what you are feeling prior, during and after the meal. We are all aware of the concept of comfort food, but do we take a moment to reflect upon if it has been beneficial. Aligned with this is the concept of mindfulness. That is being aware of what we are doing while engaged in the act. Eating without other distractions and enjoying the meal. Keeping a food diary for one week can reveal a great deal as regards our attitude to the things we eat.
