You’ve heard of mindfulness – or maybe not. What is it? What does it mean? Why do it? What’s in it for me? All good questions. Add to that – “Why does eating mindfully make a difference?”
The dictionary describes mindfulness as “a mental state achieved by focusing one's awareness on the present moment, while calmly acknowledging and accepting one's feelings, thoughts, and bodily sensations.”
The idea of mindfulness is that you bring total awareness to every moment – paying attention to what you are doing, thinking, feeling, experiencing in that moment.
Benefits of mindfulness that have been reported include less stress, lower blood pressure, better sleep, better memory, greater efficiency, better relationships, and the list goes on.
So why eat mindfully? Think about your normal meal routine. Are you rushing through breakfast to make that early meeting? Do you eat while driving? Do you eat lunch in front of the computer? Do you eat dinner in front of the T.V.? Do you sometimes forget what you even ate?
