Most people will not practice this simple, 3-step mindful eating technique regularly, even though could make a huge difference in your life:
- With each bite of food: chew slowly, taking note of the scent, taste, texture, and temperature.
- Put utensils (or hand-held food) down. Take 2 slow, deep breaths.
- Notice what you thinking, feeling, and/or doing.
I’m actually so intrigued to find out exactly how much change this might create, that I’m about to embark on a week-long experiment with this at every meal.
If you don’t join me, I hope you’ll at least try it for one meal!
The thing is, most people know what they need to do, but they don’t stick to it.
Don’t be like most people. Be the best you can be, for you. (Not for me.) Don’t settle for average, for routine, for easy.
