Mindfulness is a big buzz word right now, but what does it mean? How can it be applied? Mindfulness is the process of being acutely aware of your actions and thoughts. Since I primarily use this topic as a starting point for clients with weight loss goals, I will use this as an example. If your goal is weightloss the act of practicing mindfulness is simply this: before you place any food item on your palate (in your mouth lol) ask yourself am I hungry? Why am I eating this? Is there a more nutritious food I can add or replace with this with? Pretty soon the small changes you make will turn into big results. Practice mindfulness in all you do- before you speak, before you act, before you think- and most importantly before you eat.
