Try the Calming Effect of Mindful Eating. This New York Times article focuses the effect of mindful eating on your health.
The article encourages us to become aware of the food we are eating. It suggests that we use our senses to see the colors and textures, to smell the aroma and to really taste what is in our mouths, one bite at a time.
Often we do not even taste our food because we wolf the food down quickly, watch TV or are in conversation.
This creates much of our issues with indigestion because we are not even aware when we are full. We also lose out on the pleasure that food can bring us.
Food is another way to practice showing up for your life. It is an opportunity to allow what you are eating to be your focus, which will keep you in the experience of the moment. You will be able to get more pleasure savoring your food.
