EATING ON THE RUN UNDERMINES MINDFUL EATING

Great big, DUH, right? I like to call it drive-by eating. It may not even be guilt ridden, “wish I hadn’t eaten that…” But it certainly isn’t consistent with mindful eating principles of being in the moment. Mindful eating doesn’t say “don’t ever eat candy.” Instead, it says is “eat your candy – and enjoy it!” Perhaps this drive-by eating is what leads us to over indulge. It takes more and more to satisfy because the act of eating is so unsatisfying. I like to rephrase the popular phrase about a person on his deathbed who wishes he would’ve worked more (instead of spending time with his family). I usually say, who wants to be on her deathbed stoically recounting all the chocolate truffles she resisted. Nonsense, right?
Slow down, breathe in, center yourself, enjoy your food.
