Mindful Eating: The Art of Being Present at the Dinner Table

Mindful Eating: The Art of Being Present at the Dinner Table | HAPI Eating | Scoop.it
Questions: where were you at dinnertime last night? What did you eat? Was anyone else with you? Did you do anything else during the meal besides eat? How did your food taste? Did you enjoy your food? What did you think about as you ate?
HAPILABS's insight:

A vivid depiction of personal experience with eating and why we have forgotten to enjoy our experience with food. Eating mindfully is important. Experience your food. Most of the time we would not be able to answer the questions posted by Mark in this blog post. Sitting down at the dinner table means setting cares aside and focus on the experience. Sure, we are far more busy, most of the time, to do this. But think about it. We put other priorities, other, meaning not ourselves, first. How different would our days be if we just set aside a few minutes in a day and focus on our eating and ourselves in the process. Eating is nourishment of the body, eating can also be nourishment of the mind (rest from your cares and give yourself a break.) Eating would be far more beneficial if we eat mindfully.

HAPILABS's insight:

I don't know about you but I wouldn't be HAPI at all while eating if weightloss and counting calories are nagging me while I take every fork serving. If we are concerned with weightloss, it is very important that we try not to be too focused on "how much weight I will lose or will not gain by eating this potato salad", and realize that our concern for weightloss should come after our prioirity of staying healthy and being fit. This is article is an excellent elaboration on this fact, and a great reminder to keep us on the right track :)

What we post on Facebook may be an "exaggerated" look at our social lives, but according to a new study, the social media website could actually provide a pretty accurate reflection of obesity rates around the country.
