Experts suggest ways to correct habits that keep us from resting well
Verified by Psychology Today
Since I was a child, I always unconsciously eat slower than most people. Back then, as a child, because I eat so slow, I eventually fall asleep in front of the dinner table. As always, I would try to eat faster but to no avail because I get stomachaches afterwards. Before I discovered this article, when I'm eating with a new acquaintance, I would say to him/her that I eat slowly, not because I had to, but because it's in my nature(thank God, he/she understands). I would always feel guilty because of this. Unfortunately, in my country, they admire people who lives the fast-paced lifestyle, even those who eat fast.
