Eat More Mindfully

You gorged on two--okay, three--kinds of pies, never even stopping to ask yourself if you were still hungry. To eat more mindfully next time, try reverse warrior pose. Start in a standing position and step back with your right leg, bending left knee to 90 degrees. Facing right, swing your left arm overhead so bicep is near left ear. Raise right arm and clasp hands, keeping shoulders down and chest open. Gaze down. “Think about grounding your feet into the floor and bringing your focus onto body so you can be more mindful on your mat and off,” Price suggests. Hold for 15 breaths; repeat on other side.
