Multitasking can be a great thing. You can cut weekly coupons out of the paper while catching up on the daily news or, perhaps prep lunches for the week while you are cooking dinner. However, there is no place for multitasking while you are eating. Being mindful while you eat is an important practice for a healthy lifestyle. It means bringing awareness to your eating. Engaging with other activities while you eat does the exact opposite of what you are trying to accomplish. You may think you are saving time but in reality, you are removing your enjoyment from eating and not saving anything at all.
