1. Do you know how to hold chopsticks?

If you are like me, you probably don’t know how to hold chopsticks correctly. It’s really not that hard. The first thing you need to do is place your thumb on the side of the chopstick, pointing towards the top of the chopstick. Next, you want to make sure that your index finger is touching the chopstick, and your middle finger is on the other side of the chopstick. It’s really important that you keep these fingers close together because it will help you grip the chopsticks better.

Put your middle finger on top of your pointer finger so that your thumb is still on the other side of the chopstick and your pointer finger is on top of your middle finger. Now grab your thumb and rest it on top of your pointer finger, in the space between your middle and pointer fingers. Place the chopsticks between your thumb and pointer fingers to grip them now. If you do this correctly, you should be able to hold the chopsticks with one hand with ease.

Now, use your thumb and index finger to pick up the first piece of food. Gently place it into your mouth and chew slowly. You can now place your left hand back on top of the two chopsticks and continue with the rest of your meal.
