Daily Positive Quote, April 7th, 2021
Don’t underestimate the power of mindfulness. It is through these small moments of mindfulness that we reverse old habits and initiate an inner movement toward health.
Today’s Affirmation: I am present and focused when I nourish my body.
Journal Prompt: What do you do when you are eating? Who are you surrounded by, what sounds do you hear, what do you see? Write in great detail how it feels to experience a meal, including the emotions that might come up. If you are having a hard time with describing the details, take the next meal that you have, in total mindful awareness, and do nothing but eat, and be present with the space that you are occupying at that moment.
The concept of mindful eating starts in preparation. Whether you are heating up something in the microwave, or are cooking an elaborate meal for family and friends, being truly present with each aspect of preparation, consumption, and cleaning up, can be a transformational experience. From this point, it is easy to step into a gratitude practice as it is so much easier to be grateful for what you are aware of.
