Mindful Eating

 “There are some people who eat an orange but don’t really eat it. They eat their sorrow, fear, anger, past, and future.” - Thich Nhat Hanh

“When you eat with awareness, you find that there is more space, more beauty. You begin to watch yourself, to see yourself, and you notice how clumsy you are or how accurate you are. … So when you make an effort to eat mindfully…, you find that life is worth much more than you had expected.” - Chogyam Trungpa

This was an excerpt from Zen Habits-

Awareness is the key to changing anything. Take a deep breath, ask questions and respond to feedback. Slower is sometimes better.
