What Is Conscious Eating? | Healthy Food


Conscious eating is really all about awareness
and giving yourself a chance to think and feel about where your body and state of mind
are. so when you come to the table , don’t just
bring your food to the table, bring your awareness, to yourself , to your body , to your motions
and your thoughts . Now really give yourself a chance to your food to look at it, smell
it , taste it and chew it properly so that you recognize that you’re eating that your
mind and your body have a chance to feel when you’re full and also by chewing properly you’re
actually gonna digest the food better , get more nutrition out of it when turn nice side
benefit but conscious eating is also about understanding what your emotional state is. If you’re coming with your meal with a lot
of stress, you’re per-occupied with your work , some relationship issues, that stress shows
up in your body and when you are under stress, your not digesting your food properly, you
probably gonna eat more, you might eat too fast , which again gives digestive problems
, you don’t get the nutrition out of your food so conscious eating is really about slowing
down and eating in a non-stress state. Part of conscious eating can be tricky is
when you’re trying to be conscious and the people that your eating with might not be
aware. Maybe they are eating really really fast,
or they are fighting while they’re eating, you know, it’s OK. its OK for you to be conscious and aware of
how you feel and recognize that people around you are as focused on how they’re feeling
when they’re eating . Its really most important for you to stay centered, stay aware of how
you’re feeling , if you’re feeling uncomfortable in a situation just take a break from what
you’re eating , take a breath, put your fork down, maybe wait until cloud clears maybe
wait until the energy relaxes around you . You know you can take this conscious eating rules
even a little bit too far if you’re so focused on doing things right in a certain way that’s
taking you out of the moment. If you’re not really enjoying yourself or
feeling relaxed if you’re too worried about doing right , doing the rules the right way,
that’s not really gonna help your body either that’s the stressful reaction so just take
it easy enjoy yourself, , put a foot down if you need to, take a break and enjoy your
food.
