Mindful & Intuitive Eating
Tuesday, January 08, 2013
Today I joined the Mindfulness Eating Challenge. This seems to me to be very strongly aligned with Intuitive Eating.
Today I feel like I did really well trying to be more aware when I am eating or deciding what to eat. Something I want to continue to improve.
Sitting to eat, with food on a plate where appropriate.
Assessing my feelings before I & during eating.
- am I hungry (or tired, bored, thirsty, unhappy)?
- what do I feel like eating?
- am I being influenced by others' eating?
Thinking as I eat about the flavours, textures, temperature of the food, my surroundings etc.
It sounds simple - but I find it a challenge to remember to think about what is important to me during the day - and get to the end of the day before I think properly.
Definitely a work in progress.
