This is a good habit to break regardless of your age and stage in life. But for Baby Boomers, the time is especially ripe to try something new. After all, we were the first generation to be raised in the era of fast food. The rise of drive-through restaurants parallels the impact of women’s liberation as we simultaneously invented everything from frozen dinners to multi-tasking. We were also the first generation who came into adulthood believing we should be able to have, do and be it all. In order to fulfill our potential, we got into the habit of doing everything in double-time. We didn’t walk. We jogged. We didn’t bake. We microwaved. And we didn’t chew. We gobbled. This commitment to speed may have served us in the past. But at some point, did your schedule loosen up, while you’re still eating as if you were running a race? This is one bad habit that has big implications for your overall health and well-being, especially now. This is definitely one bad habit you’re old enough to kick.
