Mindful-Eating Meditation by Deepak Chopra

I’m half way through reading Deepak Chopra‘s new book titled “What you are you hungry for?”. Though the book focuses on permanent weight loss, well-being and lightness of the soul, I believe there are some gems in this book that everyone can benefit from. One of it is the mindful-eating meditation.

According to Deepak, this exercise increases our awareness and by eating one to two meals  a week this way you can gradually transform your relationship with food, achieving a new level of complete nutrition.

Here are simple steps for a mindful-eating meditation:

  1. Begin looking at your food and taking it in visually
  2. Become aware of your foods aroma; savor it for a moment
  3. When you taste each bit, intend to taste it fully, without distractions. Appreciate the texture of each bite as you chew.

That’s it! Simple right? I think this is a great exercise especially in a time like this where we are always multitasking while eating, e.g.talking on the phone, updating social media statuses and perhaps even instragramming while eating.
