Mindful Eating

“When walking, walk. When eating, eat.” · Zen Proverb

Mindful Eating Is All About Eating Without The Burden of Your Mind


 

Mindful Eating is all about eating consciously while remaining in the stillness. If you want to know how wise and enlightened someone is, just observe the person eating. Disclaimer ( I will not be responsible for your reaction to that person ) …

Most people while eating becomes more unconscious. I have seen so many wise, spiritual persons until the food arrives on their table and suddenly they go wild without even realizing it.

This is the basic problem of the human mind. It has inherited this problem since early ages. As we know there was a time in humanity when man used to eat like animals. At that time he was unaware of how to save the food for the next day so he used to eat wildly.Another fear was that what if the other person will do if he will know me. So at that time it was best to eat wildly.

Thanks to some external evolutions now, we don’t have this problem externally, but still somewhere in the human mind the problem is present. Mindful Eating is all about dealing with this problem.

Tips for mindful eating:

Always sense fully the taste of your food.

Yes, always sense the taste and realize the energy field of the food you are eating. Every food has an energy field. By doing this you will soon know that how healthy or unhealthy the food is. Taste the apple next time you eat, you will feel every bite differently.

Be present in the moment

The human mind wants to eat all at once. It does allow the person to taste the thing being eaten. It is also the same with water. You drink more than eight glasses of water daily but you don’t know what you are drinking. You don’t taste it you just want to finish the work. Never ever play this game with your food. Food gives you life energy.

Eat patiently

Don’t be afraid, No early men will come and take your food. Take it easy, enjoy your food. Nature has given food the power to change your mood. How many times food has been able to change your attitude. By the way a bar of chocolate works for me.

Be alert when buying your food

Use your bodily intelligence rather than your mind while making eating decisions. The mind will want more sugar, but the body knows what is the requirement of this moment. So always be still before eating. Let your body make decisions.

Know what is the meaning of mindfulness and do some mindfulness exercises in daily life. It will help you to not only eat wisely but also in every area of your life. Mindfulness is a way to enlightenment. By taking initiative on this small thing, who knows where it will take you.

GOOD LUCK!

15 Motivating Quotes For A Healthy Lifestyle

Don’t you want to live as long and happy as you can? Have less medical bills. Wake up with more energy throughout the day. Don’t worry about high cholesterol and blood pressure. These are all things that you can attain while living a healthy lifestyle. No one said it was easy. You have to be mentally strong and have will power made of steal. That’s why I decided to give you 15 motivating quotes for a healthy lifestyle.

1. The best feeling is when you know that no one thinks you can do something. Then you prove them all wrong.

Do It Because They Said You Couldn't

2. Nothing worth having is ever easy to come by. The same goes for a healthy life. There may be some hard decisions and a lot of discipline, but when you get what you earn you will appreciate it so much more.

Earn Your Body

3. Some people may think you’re crazy for giving up certain foods. Some people may think you’re even crazier if you workout two or three times in a day. Soon enough they will be asking you how you managed to do it.

First They Ask Why, Then How

4. Worry about the big picture. That means a life long habit of training your body and eating well on a regular basis. Your body will take care of the rest.

Forget About Getting Skinny. Eat Well And Exercise

5. Don’t give up just because you think you’re trying and you don’t see the results that you want. You can push yourself to limits that you never thought possible, only if you really want something.

Work Harder

6. Everyone has will power, including you. If you make a decision to change something in your life then mean it. Go as furiously as you can towards that decision. Don’t waver. That will give a chance for doubt to seep in.

It's Not About Will Power. It's About Change

7. When you hit obstacles in the road, more often then not you can’t control it. What you can control is how you respond to that obstacle that made you fall. It’s your decision how confidently you get back up and back on track. Only worry about what you can control.

It's Not How Far You Fall. It's About How Long It Takes To Get On Your Feet

8. It’s not about how fast you’re moving. As long as you’re moving towards your goals, you are making yourself better. That’s all that matters. Being healthy and strong is a lifelong journey, so you don’t have to rush.

Keep Moving Foreward

9. Look back at #6. It’s all about your mindset. If you make a decision and stick by it, everything else will take care of itself.

Losing Weight Is A Mind Game

10. Whatever your best is, give that effort in everything that you do. If you try your hardest then in the end there will be no regrets. You will be ultimately happy with the result.

Run Faster. Eat Better

11. You only get one body and one life on this earth. Respect yourself and love yourself enough to take the best care of yourself.

Take Care Of Your Body

12. You are the only one who can change you. You are the only one who can make decisions for yourself. You are in full control so there is no excuses. Chase after the body, mind, and health that you want.

You Are The Creator Of Your Own Destiny

13. Nothing will happen if you stand by idly, or just wish for it. A healthy lifestyle requires work, and no one is going to do it for you. Climb your own ladder to success.

You Can't Climb The Ladder Of Success With Your Hands In Your Pockets

14. To reach a goal, first you have to figure out what you want. Picture yourself as the person you want to be and then go after it. Constantly have a clear picture in your mind. Think about it all the time until you reach it. Then guess what? Set another goal to make yourself even better.

You Must Begin To Think Of Yourself As Becoming Ther Person You Want To Be

15. You are mentally and physically stronger than you ever thought possible, but you won’t ever figure that out until you put yourself in that situation. Pursue situations that challenge your mind and body.

You Will Never Know Your Limits Unless You Push Yourself To Them

If you haven’t already started making changes in your lifestyle to be more health conscious, I hope this motivated you to do so. Your body is counting on you. Just simple changes in your lifestyle can save you tons of money on doctor visits and medication. It’s definitely worth the effort. The beginning can be the hardest part. But NEVER quit!
