Welcome to Week 3 Introduction
Welcome to Mindful Eating... this might be your first time hearing this term but it isn't your first time hearing me say that mindfulness is a lifestyle and that I would introduce you to all the way that you could incorporate being mindful into your daily living besides sitting mediation. Well here you go...
Slowing down is one of the best ways we can get our mind and body to communicate what we really need for nutrition. The body actually sends its satiation signal about 20 minutes after the brain, which is why we often unconsciously overeat. But, if we slow down, you can give your body a chance to catch up to your brain and hear the signals to eat the right amount.
Often we listen first to our minds, but like many mindfulness practices, we might discover more wisdom by tuning into our bodies first. Rather than just eating when we get emotional signals, which may be different for each of us, be they stress, sadness, frustration, loneliness or even just boredom, we can listen to our bodies.
Don't be shy about this practice give it a try and dive in..slowly that is :)
