Mindful Moments in Meals

A huge part of well-being is practicing mindfulness so that one can be better in tune with their mind, body, and spirit. Mindfulness is more than sitting in a quiet room with your legs in a crisscrossed position. Mindfulness can be practiced in every aspect of your life, including eating and hydration. 

When practiced to its fullest, mindful eating turns a simple meal into a spiritual experience, giving us a deep appreciation of all that went into the meal’s creation as well a deep understanding of the relationship between the food on our table, our own health, and our planet’s health.

Taking moments to actually sit and appreciate your food, chew it thoroughly, and think about all of the good that you are doing in your body is an important part of nourishing your body in the most productive way possible. Additionally, putting fresh herbs in a meal or a beverage can provide a mindful moment in the flavors subconsciously and consciously making things taste better and fresh. 

How are you going to hydrate your body and elevate your mind today?
