Good Sounds, Good Digestion

By Ritamarie Loscalzo


A John Hopkins University study discovered that listening to soft music during meals causes one to eat less and encourages better chewing (and thus digestion).   Rock music, on the other hand,  causes one to eat more, and at a much faster pace.

This is no knock on rock – it’s quite energizing in the appropriate setting!   But a relaxed, stress-free environment during mealtimes will help assure a pleasurable and conscious dining experience, one in which it is possible to be truly present in the moment.

And remember, laughter (along with loving conversation) is the most harmonious music of all!

How would you rate your typical mealtime environment now, and what modifications would you like to implement to build upon gratitude, health and presence?
