Mindful May Box
It's May - WAHEY! That should mean warmer days and balmier evenings - but it seems most of us are still holding out for those! However, we are starting to experience a little more normality which is so welcome right now, seeing friends and family again means so much. Although we cannot forget that for most, this adjustment back to 'normal' living is going to take time and we must be gentle to ourselves. Our health and wellbeing is still paramount, and a lot of this comes down to what we fuel our bodies with. So, we are making a conscious effort to eat more mindfully and we thought you might like to get involved too.
Practising mindful eating simply means being present when we eat – paying attention to it and being aware of it. So we're going to start with snacking, it's easy to grab something and stuff it in before your next call or whilst running out the door on our way to an end of the day pick up when we're super hungry - which invariably means it's also probably inhaled and doesn't touch the sides. We are taking some time to pause, savour the moment and enjoy each mouthful of this little slice of heaven we're treating ourselves to. It's really really simple when you think about it, but I'm not sure many of us practice mindful eating. So who's up for the challenge - and it's a serious challenge for me who likes to inhale food at 100mph. Wish me luck!
