What do we mean when we talk about mindful eating? Is it really about dutifully chewing a single raisin for hours on end?
Simply put, mindful eating is about learning to pay attention — pausing to check in with yourself and discern, among other things,
- Why you feel like eating — are you hungry, or is something else at play?
- What you are eating — does this food truly nourish you?
- How you feel as you’re eating — are you in your body or somewhere else?
- How you feel after eating — are you contented, overstuffed, still hungry?
In this video I present a few simple tips from the “Yoga of Eating” as presented in the ancient Indian practice of Ayurveda (and echoed in other traditional cultures) that will help you synchronize your mind and body to be fully present to the food on your plate.
