You want your bands tight enough to provide you with a challenge, but not too tight where it could cause you to pull a muscle," says Tate.

According to Carla Marie Manly, PhD, clinical psychologist and author of Joy From Fear, pausing to practice gratitude before eating allows the mind, body, and soul to acknowledge the importance of mealtime—and food itself. "Whether a person is religious, spiritual, agnostic, or atheistic, a pre-meal practice of gratitude provides the opportunity to appreciate the time, energy, and effort that was invested in bringing the food from farm to table," Dr. Manly says.
