If you’re trying to master the art of mindful eating, this meditation will definitely help.
Why eat mindfully?
When you’re eating mindlessly (AKA without thinking), your food choices are more likely to be emotional, and you’re more likely to overeat. In fact, there is plenty of scientific evidence that mindful eating is good for your health. One recent review of the available research on the connection between mindful eating and weight found that there’s a strong connection between eating mindfully and losing or maintaining a healthy weight.
And meditation is an amazing tool for cultivating mindfulness.

(Think: the Drybar of meditation.) There are now two brick-and-mortar studios, but the team also launched an app that brings the fresh, modern approach to meditation to people all over the world.
