You may have noticed that “mindfulness” is all the rage. This is great news! There is lots of research to support the benefits of mindfulness: everything from managing one’s weight; to reducing stress; managing chronic pain; improving moods…I could go on and on. But, here’s the rub— mindfulness (including mindful eating) is not a panacea. Yes, it’s very beneficial but, to achieve those benefits, you need to apply mindfulness on a regular basis. Just being mindful for a day or even a week will not yield those results.
Becoming mindful, whether it’s through mindful meditation, mindful eating, or just a general awareness of life around, you takes effort. From my point of view, it is an effort well worth undertaking. What we know from the research is that the more you apply mindfulness principles, techniques and tools the more you will experience the positive outcomes.
If you haven’t already started being mindful, give it a try. Your mind, body and spirit will thank you. Let me know how being mindful has been helping you.
