How to eat mindfully
Choosing what to eat
Look or think about the choices, becoming aware of what’s on offer. Notice all the factors at play – the different foods, what they’re made of, how they are prepared, how they smell, the cost. Appreciate that the choice is yours, and notice what thoughts or feelings arise from each option, without trying to change them.
Benefits: To stop and notice the foods on offer opens our eyes to the choices we make. It allows us to make informed decisions that nourish us – whether that’s by making a wholesome choice or one that’s more indulgent!
