DAY # 4
Ok, I know yesterday was definitely a challenge for some people – shake it off and let’s crush today!
Today I will eat every meal and snack without any distractions like a TV, computer, book, phone, magazine, kindle or fill in the blank.
Focus on your FOOD today without being distracted by anything else. Conversation is ok – but nothing else to prevent you from creating awareness around what you are doing and how you are feeling at mealtimes! You want to focus on the activity of eating and any emotions that might be stimulated by removing distractions like watching TV, talking on the phone or reading. The popularity of this challenge can go either way – it’s usually a struggle for a lot of people, myself included at breakfast since it’s easy to fall into multi-tasking. But then others actually enjoy finally taking time out for themselves, sitting down and reconnecting with eating in peace. Today it’s all about your food.
Don’t forget about that body love, rating your hunger levels, and sitting down for meals.
Do the best you can. Remember the biggest piece of this challenge is there is NO JUDGMENT! From me or from yourself.
We are all doing the best we can at the level of awareness that we are at. You are cultivated mindful eating skills so give yourself a pat on the back for taking this journey!
