Mindful : December 2015
9 Just Eat When we eat we are often “doing” something else at the same time (working, looking at a device, talking with someone, reading, etc.), which takes away from tasting and fully enjoying the food. See if you can, for at least one meal or snack this week, just eat. 10 Have a Communal Meal Since the dawn of time people have made it a point to “break bread” together. Invite people over for a special dinner, have a potluck, or go out to a restaurant. Feel the con- nection grow. A BOX OF SIMPLE ADVICE 11 Surf Your Urges We have all been prone to want something that isn’t good for us—for many of us it happens more often than we’d like to admit. Try an experiment: Next time you are craving something you know isn’t healthy for you, set a timer for 20 minutes and then check back in to see if you still want it. That space can often invoke perspective that will help you make a more mindful decision. ● In the information age, the endless advice on what to eat and how to eat it can be over whelm- ing and ultimately diminishes your experience of food. In addition to trusting exper ts it’s also impor tant to learn how to trust ourselves, let go of harsh judgments, and enjoy the food that nourishes our bodies. No ar ticle or book can know exactly what is best for any of us so it’s impor tant to experiment with foods and see what feels right and what doesn’t feel right to YOU. When you do find what you enjoy, and feels healthy and nourishing to your body, see if you can take just one more extra step and allow your- self the indulgence of savoring each bite...
