Mindfulness is Always in Style, Awareness is Bliss!

January 8th, 2014 No Comments Tags: , ,

Amidst the array of New Year banter I read that “mindfulness was back in vogue” this year, hmmmmm. This is one of life’s principles that should always be in vogue and it should never fall out of style like bell bottoms of old.

Whether you want to eat better, live better, appreciate where you are in life and those around you, you need to work on being in the moment every day. I’ve had some down time in California lately taking in the gleaming coast, the towering redwood forests and fabulous wine country plus delectable tastes of the area. It’s so easy to check out of Mother Nature’s finer moments pondering your to-lists for work, home and more then miss the pink cotton candy clouds in the sky or those 5 stealth hawks soaring in the breeze or that water spout of a feisty dolphin out in the distant waters or the mellowing aromatics of a mammoth pine that fills up your senses.

If you can only get your head around making one change this year being more mindful as it relates to your eating and drinking this year, could bring a wide array of benefits. Try slowing down your eating and focusing on what you put into your pie hole – the taste, the texture, that flavour burst, a zesty crunch. After an hour of eating focus on how that food makes you feel. Do you feel energized and pumped to take on the world? Or do you feel lethargic, need a nap or a polar vortex mint to get that ultra processed yucky taste out of your mouth?

I describe upping your entire eating experience and putting your favourite food to this ultimate test in my e-book e-book Skinny on Slim, The Little Black Dress of Diet Books and talk about Awareness is Bliss. I dare say that as you become more mindful and aware of your food and how it makes you feel, you’ll automatically start to make better changes that’ll result in a healthier you.

This one simple goal can bring the most richness to every layer of your life. Embrace it today!
