The reason we’ve left this Mindful Eating moment until last is because we want to leave you with something that’s really easy to incorporate into your every day life. We all eat every day right?! Before you take your first bite, take a few moments to turn off distractions, sit down properly to eat your food, observe it’s texture, taste, temperature, “tummy feel” and any feelings of satisfaction or gratitude you experience as you take it into your body.
You can take this exercise even further. Think beyond the food itself nourishing your body. Think about the journey each ingredient in your meal took to get to your kitchen table. The supply chain, the delivery drivers, the person who packaged your ingredients, the supermarket staff who displayed your food on the shelves, the harvesters, the farmers and growers who tended the crops or animals. So much human energy and care has gone into this meal that is nourishing your body.
Thinking about the greater picture in this context with a sense of gratitude can naturally instill a sense of perspective and peace in us, quieting our mind of its worries and stresses.
Enjoy each meal with gratitude.
Enjoy caring for yourself.
Enjoy simple moments.
