Eat consciously and not on the run – 8 Jan 08

I am writing before having dinner today. The smell of spices is already coming up to my room. I am getting hungry. Your body is the temple of your soul. You have to take care of what you give him to eat. Many times I get the impression that many people just eat too quickly in order to fill their stomach. Buying something on the way to work and eating it while walking. Eating the whole day bit by bit sweets and crackers, without really noticing that you are eating. There is nothing wrong with being a sweet tooth. People are always surprised when they see how much I love chocolate. If you feel like you really want to have something, eat it. Just be aware of it! Listen to what your body is telling you. Take some care to eat in a healthy way. Eat consciously, know that you are chewing and swallowing. Like this you appreciate your food and give it a completely different energy which will remain in your body. Food is also energy! Be aware of this and enjoy your meal.

  1. It is so hard to eat consciously! I am always moving around, I feel really bad abut myself when I am not doing two or three things at once, I always eat while doing something.

  2. Easier said than done. My family never sat down to dinner together, we were always running around and then get food by yourself whenever you have time. You know, I think I would like to take a cooking class. Maybe slow down a little.

  3. Yes, it is very important to be mindful while eating. And to notice what emotions you have when you are consuming food. Some people eat when they are bored, others eat when they are depressed, and some eat when they are lonely. The energy and thoughts that you produce go into the food you consume. So if you send sadness into your food while cooking or consuming, you eat more sadness.
    It is also said that people digest food better in the company of loved ones. I hope that family meals enjoyed over conversation and love will be more common in the future!
