In the midst of overwhelm, we run to food for comfort and when we are stressed. Many times, it can be food that is not so good for us, but if we can tap into what we are really hungry for, what we truly desire, we will come to realise it isn’t the food.
If we practice eating mindfully, we can come more present with this awareness. We can decrease mindless eating that is more about suppressed feelings and emotions.
For this meditation, you will need a small piece fo food (nuts or a cut apple), something you enjoy eating.
This meditation is from the Meditation Studio App Mindful Eating Collection. These were designed to help us slow down as we prepare and eat our meals and to help us explore our relationship with our food and our bodies. Our experts use breath, body and visualization styles.
