Mindful Eating

Mindful eating is based on the Buddhist concept of mindfulness, which means being fully aware of what is happening around you in that moment. It is not a diet. There are no menus or food restrictions. It is simply developing a new mindset around food. When mindfulness is applied to eating, meal time and the approach to eating is slowed down and becomes more thoughtful by noticing the colors, flavors, smells, taste and textures of food. In order to be fully present with the experience of eating, distractions should be eliminated. This enables us to avoid plowing through a meal half-consciously. Here are some simple practices to begin working towards mindful eating: turn off background media, eat at the dinner table, tune into the texture and flavors of the food, chew slowly and put your fork down between bites. Question:
  • Do you practice mindful eating? How does giving your full attention and appreciation to the eating experience make you feel about your food?
