Show Your Body Love: Be Mindful About What You Eat!

Your Body is an amzing, beautiful creation! Love it! Nourish it! Be kind to it! Eat well! Let the foods of the earth bring harmony and healing into your body with every bite, every taste, every smell!

Love your body! Love yourself!

Today I am pausing and focusing on my body: I nourished my body by reading an article on the Huffington Post called, “Could Mindful Eating Wean us From our Bad Food Habits?” by Harbir Kaur, a UK science teacher. She states, “Allow your senses to be electrified by something as simple as a slice of bread.” To be so focused on something like a piece of bread, to savor every single bite; to let your mouth be conscious of how the bread feels on your teeth, and your tongue to notice every flavor and texture takes a lot of intentionality. Of course it does! But who really has the time to truly enjoy what they eat? That there, is the challenge-making the time! So challege yourself: make yourself feel alive! Savor your food and enjoy it more; notice how you begin to eat healthier and thus, your body reaps the rewards of healing and wellness. Congratulations to you! You have joined celebrities such as

Oprah Winfrey as an advocate for ‘Mindful Eating.’ In fact if you are interested in this even more there is an entire organization centered around the goodness ‘Mindful Eating’ does for us:

Mindful eating has the powerful potential to transform people’s relationship to food and eating, to improve overall health, body image, relationships and self-esteem.-The Center for Mindful Eating.

Okay, so if other people are talking about this, it must mean something! Pause! “Let me take a bite of this grape. Ahhh..refreshing, crunchy, wet. sweet and a bit sour…

So today be intentional about eating your food!

  • Enjoy every bite.
  • Recognize what a wonderful gift it is to be able eat food.
  •  Take the time to pause and reflect on what an amazing creation your body is: You open your mouth, take a bite, and your body knows just what to do with the food you eat: giving you energy for the day ahead, healing your wounds, bringing you back to a childhood moment of something good…all happening in moments without any effort from you other than eating your food.Today be intentional in your life, and see what wonderful things may happen! Heal your body!

Healing Through Inspiration Can Lead to Your Own Success Story

I’ve always needed a bit more motivation on Mondays! Like the saying goes,” when you look you shall find!” In my search for healing I came across this article, Lee Rhodes, Glassybaby: A Battle With Cancer Gives Life To A Startup in the Huffington Post. Ms. Rhodes shares how she had an inspiring moment of healing in her life, which lead to her creating art that inspires healing in other individual’s lives. She has created a company out of her healing and inspiration. It is helpful to hear and share other individual’s stories–they affirm your own experiences of healing; and they motivate you to see your potential!

When we allow ourselves to be open to moments of healing, incredible things can happen! Maybe Lee Rhodes’ story will bring inspiration into your creative life as well. I know it has for me.

How has an experience of healing or the process of healing inspired you to share yourself with others? Share your comments!

For me, my healing journey has inspired me to share my passion for writing and photography with others, through my blog and other avenues in my life.

Blog, Eat with Love & Heal Your Body

About three weeks ago a friend posted on Facebook an article from the Huffington Post. I actually took the time to read it and really enjoyed it. This was a strange occurrence for me; for the last two years I haven’t had much time to pay attention to anything other than making sure that I kept breathing, & that my son and husband were taken care of each day. I’ve officially been a stay-at-home mom for four months this Tuesday. It took me about three months to de-stress from my very hectic life. Finally at 3 1/2 months I developed the courage to begin to write this blog, and now I’m addicted to speaking on this screen. I’ve found the time to read more and write more, and thus, nourish my mind and spirit more.

So today I needed to pause and focus on my body: I nourished my body by reading an article on the Huffington Post called, “Could Mindful Eating Wean us From our Bad Food Habits?” by Harbir Kaur, a UK science teacher. She states, “Allow your senses to be electrified by something as simple as a slice of bread.” To be so focused on something like a piece of bread, to savor every single bite; to let your mouth be conscious of how the bread feels on your teeth, and your tongue to notice every flavor and texture takes a lot of intentionality.
