Mindful Eating – Slow down, enjoy the sensory experience of dining, and control your intake by learning to eat mindfully
Do you often find yourself rushing through meals?
Do you wish you could get into the habit of really slowing down and enjoying your food?
In times past, mealtimes were an opportunity for us to come together and really savor the experience of eating, sharing, and being together. But in an increasingly fast-paced world, many of us have lost our connection with this experience. Eating has become a chore rather than a pleasure, something we have to squeeze in between – or alongside – all our other responsibilities.
But we can choose to make enjoying mealtimes a priority. We can set aside time to focus on the experience of eating, to appreciate the flavours, aromas, textures, and colours of our food. We can eat mindfully.
What does it mean to eat mindfully?
Many people think of mindfulness as being synonymous with meditation, but in fact meditation is only one form of mindfulness. Mindfulness simply means bringing your attention to the present moment. It means tuning into the sensations you are experiencing right now, rather than constantly thinking about past and future events.
Mealtimes are an excellent opportunity to practise mindfulness, especially for beginners. Meditation can feel intimidating, as many of us find it hard to clear our mind of thoughts and worries. But when you apply mindfulness to eating, your mind has a point of focus.
Mindful eating means slowing down and really tuning in to how your food looks, smells, tastes, and feels as you eat it. It allows you to really enjoy the experience of eating, appreciate your food for the nourishment it provides, and recognize when you are full. It is a chance to relax and let go of your responsibilities, if only for a moment.
How hypnosis can train your mind to associate mindfulness with mealtimes
Of course, there's a divide between deciding to eat mindfully and actually doing it! By hypnotically rehearsing the experience of mindful eating and the benefits it can bring to your life, you can ease the process of turning it into a natural and effortless habit.
Mindful Eating is an audio hypnosis session that will help you become more relaxed and mindful during mealtimes.
As you relax and listen repeatedly to your session, you'll notice that you:
- Enjoy the sensory experience of eating
- Eat slowly and calmly
- Experience better digestion
- Eat healthier foods in more appropriate portions
- Feel calmer and more present in general.
