If you have been following my blog, you know that I am encouraging you to change your relationship with food with mindful eating skills. I tell you to do this or to do that. I use words like “simply” or “just.” But I know that for some, may be you, what I am recommending is a radical request. I am asking you to uproot all your eating habits and replace them with new ones.
Can I be honest with you? I know change can be hard. My path to mindful eating was not a straight line. I don’t expect yours to be. And, change is especially hard when you resist it. To be successful at anything you have to be to be willing to be uncomfortable, at least for a little while. So, instead of resisting the changes I am suggesting, embrace them. When you feel uncomfortable, explore your discomfort mindfully. Use the tools you are learning in your meditation practice to examine the sensations of discomfort.
The more you are able to be comfortable with being uncomfortable the easier and more fluid this process will be. Let me know what change is like for you.
