It’s that time of year again.
The holidays are here, and aside from the fact that youre still single and need to buy everyone and their mother a gift, youre surrounded by voluminous amounts of irresistible desserts.
Which, of course, is code for calories.
Youre backed into a corner and dont know what to do.
I mean, I don’t blame you; Williams Sonoma Peppermint Bark happens to be one of my favorite holiday treats.
It also happens to be 5,000 calories.
So what are you going to do about it? Treat yo’self does not apply to this situation.
I dont want to give you the wrong impression here.
Im not trying to sell you short or discourage you from indulging in a few well-deserved treats.
I’m just trying to steer you toward eating mindfully and intuitively.
Mindful eating is not a concept that is difficult to grasp, yet it is so overlooked.
When one eats mindfully, they without judgment have an awareness of all the different components that are influencing their eating, such as emotions, accessibility, food preferences and timing.
The next time you have the desire to eat something sweet, meditate and figure out where this craving is coming from.
What makes you crave certain sweets?
Is it an activity or a mood that is the trigger? Would you be satisfied with a bowl of berries, or must you devour a cheesecake?
So youre probably thinking, now what?
How is this an attainable goal when there are so many temptations constantly haunting us?
Well, my friends, I have some good news for you.
