Mindful Eating

Mindful Eating | Tracie Braylock
Stop. Think. Eat.

Slowly. Intentionally. Thoroughly.

The practice of eating food on purpose to nourish your entire being – mind, body, spirit – this is mindful eating.

When was the last time you:

  • Slowed down long enough to savor your food?
  • Noticed every bite, look, taste, feel, smell?
  • Lingered at the table, not rushing off to check another thing off the to do list?

Eating should offer healing and a true sense of well-being. It’s an opportunity to enjoy the present moment with full awareness of your various senses. A chance to slow down, to savor, to give thanks.

This may take time, practice, focus and determination and it’s worth it. Mindful eating nourishes you; physically, mentally, socially and emotionally.

So slow down. Take notice. Enjoy the fulfilling gift right in front of you. Then allow the practice to overflow to other areas of your life. Youโ€™ll be so glad you did.
