🌷FREE MINDFULNESS WORKOUT🌷
Did you do last week’s workout with me? If you want to be more mindful of your eating, for a healthier life, you can use mindfulness. Really noticing the taste of food, enjoying every bite, helps me in eating less and keep a healthy weight.
The best thing about mindful eating is, that it’s not about making rules for what not to eat, it’s not another rigid diet. Mindful eating is about learning to tune into your inner and outer wisdom, make your own decisions about food, and enjoy greatly what you eat!
This week’s workout is about tuning into your inner wisdom. Get more in touch with the sense of hunger and fullness by taking a few moments every day to become aware of how hungry or full you feel. Start with a few deep breaths first. Than try to discover how full you feel, you can use a rating scale again. With 1 having an empty stomach and 10 feeling totally filled. Notice where and what you can feel about being full or being hungry.
It doesn’t take a long time, and as you practice more often, you will get better and faster at it too. This practice will help in eating according to what your body needs, and make a good decision about what and when you eat. It will be easier to wait a bit longer before you get a snack, and it will help in eating less, if you are able to recognise that you are actually already feeling full. You can safe that yummy cake for later, when you notice you are still a 7 on the scale, and know that you will enjoy it much more when you are at 3.
Every time you choose to stop eating, because you noticed you are fullfilled, you will feel great about yourself, and be proud about being able to have more control over your food intake and enjoy what you eat much more too.
As always, let me know how you get on with it!
Have a great week,
