For most of my adult life (before mindful eating that is), my world revolved around food – what would I eat, what I would not eat, what I did I eat, you get the idea. Food would be in my mind most of the time, like an annoying hum or ear worm that I couldn’t shut off. Then, one day, I noticed it had shut off. My mind was no longer preoccupied with food, in any way. The food stopped singing. Now, the only time I think about food is when I start to feel physically hungry. I am no longer planning what I will eat for lunch at breakfast, or what I will eat tomorrow, today. My mind now is free to think of other things. My mind is at peace with food. I often talk about mindful eating leading to feeling at peace with food, and this is one way it happens. No more preoccupation. No more judgment or worry. I think about food when it is time to eat. The battle is won. The war with food is over. Adapted from Mindful Bites – Joyful Life: 365 Days of Mindful Eating. Available in bookstores everywhere.
