5 Mindful Eating Party Tips

  • Survey all of the options for food and drink before picking up a glass or plate

  • Savor a glass of water between each alcoholic beverage
  • Face away from the food

5 Mindless Party Eating Reduction Tips

  • Use the smallest plate and cup available
  • Keep the evidence of the fact that you ate for a little bit to remind yourself that you ate and are likely satisfied.
