One thought on “The Slow Down Diet: Enjoying Food, Feeling Better

  • June 2, 2012 at 8:25 pm

    I really liked this article and I’m planning to try this the next time I’m eating or snacking. I’m a big fan of Thich Nhat Hanh and his mindfulness training.

    When you really “get it”, you begin to realize how mindfulness changes everything. By being more mindful, you can become aware of special moments–the kind you’ll remember fondly in the future–as they are happening and bring your full senses into them AS THEY ARE HAPPENING rather than waiting until some future time when you’re looking back and trying to recall the experiences.

    Not only this, but when you’re being mindful, you can also recognize when a special moment is happening for others, like your kids, and then do things to enhance their experience…to bring them into mindfulness. What a gift!

    Thanks for the great reminder, Elisha, to be more mindful. 🙂
