Unlike the rest of us- Charlie took his time unwrapping the chocolate bar and allowed a leisurely whiff of it's characteristic chocolate goodness. He broke off a small piece and examined the chunk with full gratitude. Placing it on his tongue he closed his eyes and savored the melting layers of flavor . . .
Yesterday I was Charlie Bucket at a mini-mindfulness retreat at my local Natural Grocers led by certified life coach Charles Gosset.CPC. Each participant took a small sample sized piece of Taza Chocolate. I am not sure how long this mindful eating meditation lasted but from this tiny morsel we all felt fully satisfied. How often do we all rush through a "treat" and not give it our full attention? Take time this week to savor a meal or dessert- use all of your senses and direct your attention. Thanks Charlie Bucket!
This week I will practice mindful eating.
