Mindful Eating- a Short Introduction

IMG_3907
Both mindfulness as well as eating are two widely discussed topics. We can find all kind of information and tips for what and when we should eat and what and when we should not eat. The topic of mindfulness starts to get to be known more and more, which is great, because it really has the power to heighten our well- being by taking us into the present moment without judgment. Eating, being such a widely discussed topic is helpful in some way, but in others it just drives us crazy. Bringing mindfulness and eating together allows us to understand who we are when we eat and that is, as research suggests, extremely important. I have discussed the role of our mind in eating in my last post, which you can find here. In that post I listed mindful eating as one way of getting in touch with our mind. I will now explain what mindful eating is and how it can be introduced into our lives.

We do not only accumulate toxins in our bodies, but in our minds as well and just as important as the health of our body, is the well- being of our mind.

Self-Knowledge for True Contentment

When was the last time you spent time on getting to know yourself? Sitting down without distractions observing yourself, your emotions, your behavior, and your way of living?

We deserve to live content and fulfilling lives, in order to do so we must understand our own responsibility for that and invest time and effort. Many of us are so into complaining and doing that we forgot to observe and be. If we want to be happier and improve our life it is crucial to first gather enough knowledge about our self to be able to do so. We cannot change something in the proper way if we have no knowledge about it.

The Real Magic of Yoga: Embodiment
