Thanksgiving leftovers still take space in my refrigerator. We will hopefully polish off the final bits of mashed garlic potatoes, turkey and cranberry sauce in the next day or so. This time of year, food can certainly become the focus of all our holiday gatherings. Coming in 2016, Angela and I embark on a new endeavor to bring Mindful Eating workshops/groups to the Farmington area. We are excited to share how to transform the suffering created by trying to sustain a diet plan, perhaps even subjecting yourself to the packaged diet food that some plans deliver to your door. Come join us on January 30th as we begin the journey of reconnecting to our bodies as we discover a new, healthy path back to making peace with food. Please visit our events page for more details.
Where is your mind right now? Without judging the findings, chances are you may have been thinking about something in the future or trying to resolve something from the past.
We are hard-wired to scan for problems and threats. Research shows that we spend about 50% of our waking hours in this state of mind called the default mode network.
There is another way though and that is with mindfulness; being present to more moments of your day without judgmentas you live them. Is this a day that you can tip the scales and be present more than 50% of the time to what is happening, as it is happening?? You may be surprised with how wonderful it feels to live more of your moments fully.
