To actually think through what you’re doing.
Since I’m always encouraging you to move. Today I’m going to tell you to:
Yep, that’s right… SIT DOWN.
Do you ever eat … standing up? While you’re fixing food… in a hurry…
Is that very MINDFUL?
Because when I’m not sitting… and mindlessly eating… I’m often eating things I don’t realize…
Think of when you cook.
POP! In goes a little of this, a nibble of that… we need to make sure it tastes good. (ahem)
*Crunch* … a few extra chips … (they don’t count if I’m standing right?)
Pretty soon, we’ve had an extra serving of something we didn’t intent to.
That wasn’t very purposeful – was it? I didn’t even ENJOY it.
Focus on eating MINDFULLY – not mindlessly. Sit down… and after giving thanks to God – chew your food slowly so you can actually taste and savor it.
Again – I know this is super difficult … we’re in a hurry – someone is always needing something. I often laugh at the comedy routine at our table…. BUT really…
All it takes is a bit more effort.
By doing so, I bet it will help you eat just little less… and a little less – everyday, REALLY DOES add up!
Plus you’ll be just as satisfied!
So… go sit down!!!
“What is mankind that you are mindful of them, human beings that you care for them?” – Psalm 8:4
