Mindfulness Monday – Eating

fruits and veggies

“Food reveals our connection with the earth.
Each bite contains the life of the sun and the earth…..
We can see and taste the whole universe in a piece of bread!
Contemplating our food for a few seconds before eating,
and eating in mindfulness,
can bring us to much happiness.”

~ Thich Nhat Hanh

 

“Mindful eating is about awareness.
When you eat mindfully,
you slow down,
pay attention to the food you’re eating,
and savor every bite.”

~ Susan Albers

 

“Mindful eating is a way
to become reacquainted
with the guidance of
our internal nutritionist.”

~ Jan Chozen Bays

“I will breathe.
I think of solutions.
I will not let my worry control me.
I will not let my stress level breatk me.
I will simply breathe and it will
be okay because I don’t quit.”

~ Shayne McClendon

 

 

“Just slow down
Slow down your speech
Slow down your breathing.
Slow down your walking.
Slow down your eating.
And let that slower, steadier
pace perfume your mind.
Just slow down…”

~ Doko

You don’t always need to be getting stuff done.
Stometimes it’s perfectly okay,
and absolutely necessary,
to shut down,
kick back,
and do nothing.”

~ Lori Deschene

 

“Balance is the key to everything.
What we do, think, say, eat, feel,
they all require awareness
and through this awareness
we can grow.”

~ Koi Fresco

Mindfulness Monday – 14th Dalai Lama

“There are only two days in the year
that nothing can be done.
One is called yesterday and the other
is called tomorrow,
so today is the right day
to love,
believe,
do,
and mostly live.”

~ His holiness the 14th Dalai Lama

 

 

“Old friends pass away, new friends appear.
It is just like the days.
An old day passes,
a new day arrives.
The important thing
is to make it meaningful:
a meaningful friend –
or a meaningful day.”

~ His holiness the 14th Dalai Lama
