Eat Mindfully

I will eat all of my meals without distractions, e.g., phone, computer, TV, or newspaper.




I will write down three things every day for two weeks that I am grateful for, or send one email every day thanking or praising someone.

    It was a good EcoChallenge! My actions felt worthwhile but not too onerous. This year, I decided to pick actions for my health and well-being that I thought I could accomplish since, though I get exercise and eat a pretty healthy and low on the food chain diet, I don't tend to spend focused time on mental health, happiness, etc. There were larger actions that I wish I could tackle but didn't think I could attempt this year. Maybe next? Good job, everyone!

    Today I was thankful that we clean and save aluminum foil for reuse. I needed a piece to put over the dinner casserole and the role of new foil was nearly out. I found a usable reuse piece down in the drawer. Dinner was saved!

    Had dinner with a great group of folks. Wonderful to hear stories! Healthy to connect with people.

    I have to say that I kind of miss reading the front page or looking at the crossword as I am having breakfast or lunch, generally when I am alone. Dinner is nearly always a family affair with some conversation.

    Went hiking today, so I am thankful for sunshine in October, majestic mountains, and vine maples turning reds and oranges.

    I almost blew it when my phone rang in the back room at dinner. I was expecting a call from my son. But then I thought, "No, you can just call him back after dinner."

    I had a nice dinner at home with my mom this evening while other family members caught up on the soccer match in another room. Sometimes it's nice to have one person to focus on.

    I am glad I choose to praise or acknowledge someone daily. It is a good reminder to appreciate those around us!

    Eating mindfully is a challenge for me. Eating is something I rush through, so I can be on to the next busy thing in my life. I have long known I need to slow down, enjoy my food and the company of my family. I want to embrace this challenge.
