Try setting your fork down, completely out of your hand after every bite.
If you’re like me, this is a challenge. For years, I ate very quickly, bringing the next forkful up to my mouth before the previous one was swallowed.
The thing is, eating quickly …
… isn’t necessary – there are no lions coming;
… reduces how much you chew your food, which is important;
… completely misses the part you should enjoy: the taste.
There is no rush.
Your next forkful should come after you’ve enjoyed this one.
