Conscious Eating Tip of the Day

Friday, September 25, 2009

Slow down.

One way to lengthen and slow your eating experience (which will help you digest) is to see eating as a process. Really feel your jaw muscles engaging, your throat moving, as the food travels from mouth to stomach. Visualize the food delivering energy to all parts of your body, bathing your internal organs in nutrients.

    Dear Evelyn, I really really love this blog. My entire life I have been a very slow eater and my husband DJ is so wonderfully supportive. However other people including parents, siblings, in-laws, etcetera are always on my case.
    Now I have someone other than DJ telling me it's okay to be me. I will continue to relish the nourishment to body and soul.
    Aloha ~~ Maya

    Why does my brain want to try this exercise with a chunk of darkest chocolate. Slow, smooth....

    Changing from mindless eating to mindful, meditative eating takes practice and positive reinforcement for change. Thanks for the reminder.
