Making healthy choices starts with making a simple shift in awareness - bringing mindfulness to each meal and snack.

Minor adjustments to how you eat can have major impacts on your wellbeing over time.

Mindful eating allows you to identify triggers that lead to overeating and unhealthy choices. You become more attuned to your body's subtle cues for hunger and fullness. You observe your thoughts and feelings around food without self-criticism.

Beyond any physical effects on your diet, mindfulness cultivates self-acceptance and reduces stress - two factors that strongly influence your ability to make and sustain healthy choices.

Mindfulness has the power to transform your entire relationship with food - from one of deprivation and restriction to appreciation and nourishment.

So I invite you to give mindful eating a try, starting with your very next meal or snack:

• Take a moment to observe your food before eating
• Focus on the experience of eating slowly, savoring every bite
• Notice physical and emotional reactions in a non-judgmental way
• Practice gratitude for this nourishment

Even just 5-10 minutes of mindful eating can yield valuable insights to guide you toward choices that truly nourish your mind, body and spirit.

I encourage you to incorporate this simple practice into your daily routine - and over time, reap the many benefits of cultivating a more mindful relationship with food.
