Close laptops and leave phones on silent for an extended period of time and learn to cherish that time by spending time with friends/family or doing something that brings you joy.
- Take the time to sit down and eat your meals - Too many people eat in a rushed manner, on the run, in front of their computer or don’t eat at all. Give yourself the time and permission to relax, chew your food slowly and enjoy your meal in peace. This will give you a breather and help
