How to eat mindfully. A quick tutorial.

First things first, put down your phone, turn off the TV, and find a quiet space to eat without distractions. It might sound impossible, but trust me, it's worth it.

Next, take a few deep breaths and begin to notice the smell, appearance, and texture of your food. Don't just shove it in your face like you're competing in a hotdog eating contest, take your time and really appreciate what you're about to eat.

As you start to eat, focus on the taste and the sensation of each bite. Really chew your food and notice how it changes as you continue to chew. Pay attention to the texture and how it feels in your mouth. Is it hot, cold, hard, chewy, slimey, tasty spicy......?

If your mind starts to wander, simply bring your attention back to the present moment and your food.

It takes practice, but the more you do it, the easier it becomes. A little bit like walking!

Finally, when you finish, take a moment to reflect on how you feel. Are you satisfied? Did you enjoy your meal? What could you do differently next time to enhance your experience?

So there you have it, mindful eating in a nutshell. Give it a try and see how it makes you feel. Who knows, you might even start to enjoy your food?
