Be present

Be present

In this week's challenge you must Be present . In our busy lives, we forget to slow down and experience the simple pleasures of food and activity. Eat slowly and experience the flavors, textures, sights and smells. Notice when you feel hungry or comfortably full. When you exercise, appreciate the sensations and feelings of the present moment and your surroundings. Being grounded in the present moment helps you relax and connect to your body, mind, and spirit.

Organic Foods

Benefits of organic food:

Mindful eating can shift your eating environment from toxic to healthy. It also helps identify the triggers that cause you to overeat. Overeating can lead to guilt, stress, obesity and eating disorders. Taking time to pause and listen to your body before and during meals can help you make more nutritious choices and consume less because you're paying attention to when you feel full.

Tips on eating mindfully:

  1. Record what you eat on at least one weekend day because your eating habits during the week may differ on Saturday or Sunday

  2. Include what time you're eating, where you're eating and how you're feeling at that time

  3. Write down everything you eat or drink, even a mint or piece of gum

  4. Put down the smartphone and step away from the keyboard so you can savor the taste, texture, smell and sight of a healthy meal.
