The journey I have been taking you on is about mindful eating, but did you know that becoming mindful in the everyday moments of your life can help your mindful eating? It can. By practicing being mindful in the moment, we train ourselves to stay focused.
Take a photograph of something that you’re about to eat before you eat it. Look at the photograph and ask yourself, (1) does this food look appetizing (2) is this food that I genuinely want to eat or is it something that I’m eating because it’s available or prescribed, and (3) would I be happy sharing this photograph with someone else?
