Mindfulness isn't just for Yoga
It's that time of year when everything starts feeling a little up in the air. Kids are going back to school (maybe), winter is upon us, things are getting darker earlier and there is a shift away from the summer vibes, even if maybe this year those vibes were muted slightly.
With all this change now is a great time to get mindful and focus back in and support ourselves where we can.
Mindfulness often sounds overly complicated and like you need to set aside hours a day to become the perfect yogi in order to be mindful. Well, that just isn't the case, plus I'm coming at you today as your friendly neighborhood nutritionist not your mindfulness coach or your yoga instructor, so let's break down some practical steps you can start incorporating in and around meal time to help you find some mental space with your meals.
Incorporating mindfulness into your nutrition routine
Last little tip...try not to expect to do each and every one of these tips each and every meal. Focus on one that sounds manageable to you and see how working it into your routine feels.
Remember that if adding one of the above tips causes your additional stress or anxiety it isn't doing you any favors so consider making the idea smaller, bite off a little bit less and be kind to yourself.
