Mindful eating is about slowing everything down. Making time and prioritising about what and how we eat into our busy lives. It can be a struggle to get dinner on the table when you get home at 7pm. But it is possible when you prioritise and plan allowing you time to anticipate, sit, enjoy, chew and relax during a meal.

The Benefits of Mindful Eating
With mindful eating, we begin to enjoy the anticipation of food, appreciate the aroma’s, sight and feel of the food. Chewing your food well, and enjoying every mouthful allows the food to be broken down even further at every stage of digestion until it reaches the size needed to cross the intestinal wall, into the bloodstream and then into the cell.

Habits of a Mindful Person
When the meal is finished, practice mindfulness cleaning up. Get everyone to pitch in and enjoy the teamwork, conversation and fun. Delegate jobs and the cleaning up will be done in no time. A perfect end to a perfect meal.
This is the practice of Mindful Eating.
