We talk a lot about savoring food as we learn about mindful eating. How about savoring your beverages too? If you have been to a winery for a wine-tasting, you know what I mean.
Listen to Seymour, the man-eating plant from “Little Shop Of Horrors.” Mouth hunger is real. It’s the sensation you get when you want to eat something sometimes when you are not really hungry-hungry.
When was the last time you smelled something wonderful? Really smelled it? Did you know our sense of smell is closely related to our memories and to taste? Coincidence?
Sometimes when you think you are hungr,y you may actually be thirsty. If you are not sure, drink a tall, cool glass of fresh spring water, and see what affect it has on your hunger.
