As joyful as this time of year may be, It’s easy to forgo self-care and allow intentions to meditate and eat mindfully fall out of awareness.
One of the skills you develop as you become a mindful eater is noting when you are hungry, and when you want to eat because it’s meal time.
It’s important that you not judge, criticize or control those poor mindless souls who eat mindlessly. Instead, be an example.
The simplest way to introduce mindful eating to the people in your life is to explain that mindful eating means eating with awareness.
Mindful eating is a choice. You can choose not to do it. However, if you do so with awareness and choice, you are making a mindful decision.
