“We’ve all gotten so caught up in the habit of going through our day half asleep. We listen to what our body initially says and assume that’s the right thing without taking a step back and asking ‘Why do I want this? How will it make me feel?”” says meditation teacher and The Simple Truth Project founder Jeff Cannon. The key, he says, is learning to eat mindfully, a plan he outlines in his new download, The Mindful Diet.
“It’s a wonderful gateway to exploring mindfulness on your own terms. When you start doing it in your meals, you’ll start doing it in the office, your relationships—and the rest of your life,” he explains.
In other words, tuning in to your own needs and intentions is a healthy strategy for both curing your addiction to mac n’ cheese and to that guy who’s no good for you—but it’s easier to learn at the dinner table.
