What you are thinking about when you eat may be as important as what you are eating. Paying attention to the process of eating is, in my opinion, at least half the battle. Mindful eating is a hard practice. It’s the one that many of my clients get frustrated with after a few weeks. They will say things like, “It’s too much work always paying attention.” Or, “I start to chew food well and then forget about it and go back to eating fast.” Or, “I don’t think I can keep up always paying attention. It’s not much fun.”
When it gets down to it, this is a really hard process. Plus, it goes against the grain of a fast-paced society that is always doing one thing but thinking about the next, or doing two things at the same time. Training ourselves to eat mindfully is a training that will carry over into whatever else you do.
In addition to thinking about our food, it helps to: give thanks to the people who grew or raised it, the people who packaged it, transported it, sold it, cooked it, and served it. This helps us realize how connected we are to each other. What might the consciousness be of the people who are influencing your consciousness? Perhaps this will help you naturally switch some of your food choices. Or appreciate the choices you have made.
