Mindful eating... and not in the way that your thinking!!
Tuesday, January 22, 2013
I went to a Mindfulness Meditation class last night
with my Fam and the instructor led us through several mediations which was really good. If any of you have every tried
, it pretty difficult to calm your mind.
So he started speaking about being mindful of your breathes (I'm breathing in, I'm aware of breathing in, I breath out, I'm aware of breathing out) So he goes on to explain other times when you can be mindful of what your doing... long story short. I'm in this class and thought about how I go through most of my day NOT being mindful EXCEPT FOR WHEN I'M EATING!!!!
If I'm eating one of my favorite meals, I don't want to talk on the phone, I don't want to talk in person, I don't want to do anything but simple sit in silence, eat and enjoy every single bite.
This realization in class last night was like a brick to the forehead
. I am a straight FOOD ADDICT!!! I've known it, but when I thought about how mindful I like to be while eating... that really just said it all.
Can anyone relate?
