Do you eat your meals quickly so you can get back to what you were doing?
The way we eat is every bit as important as what we eat.
Many spiritual traditions practice mindful eating, which simply means to slow down and truly experience the aromas, flavors and textures of the food. Chewing slowly and well, and enjoying meals in a quiet setting—rather than being rushed, agitated and halfway out the door—is an essential part of this practice.
Ideally, we should treat the body as if it is a sacred laboratory, where each day we experiment with delicious foods and herbs while carefully observing how our bodies respond.
Part of the stress and anxiety so many of us feel today is because we have lost our connection with nature and our gratitude for her amazing gifts to us.
We must learn to have a deeper appreciation for those who make our meals possible and, if we’ve prepared it ourselves, we do so with a listening spirit, allowing our intuition to take over so that we are tuned in to what our bodies are asking for in that moment. We must learn the difference between being overfull and satisfied.
So what is involved in mindful eating?
Today so many of us living in big cities find that connecting with Nature has become difficult. Eating your next meal consciously will give you an incredible connection with the Earth. So transform your next meal into a sacred event and experience why food is said to be the most delicious medicine for your body and soul.
