I am starting a weekly feature called, “Mindful Monday,” where I want to share my views on becoming ‘mindful’. This encompasses the act of being watchful, aware, wary, heedful, alert, careful, or attentive, in whatever area in your life you feel it applies to.
Intrigued? Read on:
This week, because I have fallen back into the pattern of over indulging, I am going to practice “mindful eating.” I need to get back on track with my weight loss journey. I need to slow down and take my time. I also need to eat at the table, not sitting on the couch just munching away, or at my desk reading blogs on WordPress.
I also decided that this week I am going to use chopsticks to eat at least one meal each day. This will make me slow down and savor my food.
The above image is a great way to jump start your weight loss journey by practicing mindful eating. My mantra for this week is:
“EAT TO NOURISH & ENERGIZE.”
This is not a challenge. This is an offering of support. If you would like to join in with your own Mindful Monday goals, you can do so in the comments or on a separate post of your own making. If you want to link back to my post, please feel free to do so, however, it is not necessary. My primary objective here is to give and get support to become more mindful of the things I take for granted in life.
Peace and Joy to everyone this week,
