Another word for mindful is aware. Being mindful or self-aware is of utmost importance when changing your relationship with food and body. It may be something as simple as taking a breath before your meal or learning to eat using the five senses. It can be awareness of thoughts, feelings, and sensations. Being mindful also includes meditation, whether it be for one minute or twenty. Mindfulness helps with portion management, eating all foods—even cupcakes. Incorporating a mindful lifestyle is beneficial and accessible.
