Living consciously means living in the present and embracing your experiences.
The story of mindfulness goes back to the practice of Buddhist meditation, where the monks focus their attention on something specific, such as a sense, a sound, an object, an image. Recently this practice has also been incorporated into the Western culture.
Eating mindfully isn’t about following a diet. It is about the actual experience of enhancing the taste of food and enhancing the experience and enjoyment. Perhaps the most critical problem with our eating habits nowadays is that we are not as conscious as we eat. Conscious eating, as this new eating behavior is now called, has the powerful ability to transform people’s relationship with food and nutrition, improve overall health, body image, human relationships, and self-esteem.
