A brain before and after meditation

Additional Information

Research shows  that meditation changes the physical structure of the brain in significant ways.  Meditation and reflection have been shown to increase frontal cortex activity (linked to focus, calm and concentration) and even enlarge that part of the brain.

There have also been a number of studies showing how yogic breathing practices increase the Alpha brain waves associated with lower levels of stress and greater levels of creativity. Alpha brain states are where brilliant ideas arise

Connect with The Force

Meditation after practicing yoga  connects us to something greater than ourselves, to The  Force of the universe, the source of all creative power. 

Allowing  a  connection   to  the  universal consciousness and experiencing ourselves as more than our bodies and we expand into a higher reality where true  inspiration resides.

Mindful Eating Is A Form Of Meditation

Mindful eating is based on mindfulness.

Mindfulness is a form of meditation that helps you recognize and cope with your emotions and physical sensations.

It’s used to treat many conditions, including eating disorders, depression, anxiety, and various food-related behaviors.

Mindful eating is about using mindfulness to reach a state of full attention to your experiences, cravings, and physical cues when eating.

Mindful eating involves:

  • eating slowly and without distraction
  • listening to physical hunger cues and eating only until you’re full
  • distinguishing between true hunger and non-hunger triggers for eating
  • engaging your senses by noticing colors, smells, sounds, textures, and fl
  • learning to cope with guilt and anxiety about food
  • eating to maintain health and well-being
  • noticing the effects food has on your feelings and figure
  • appreciating your food

These things allow you to replace automatic thoughts and reactions with more conscious, healthier responses.

Why should you try mindful eating?

Today’s fast-paced society tempts people with an abundance of food choices. On top of that, distractions have shifted attention away from the actual act of eating toward ’screens’.

Eating has become a mindless act, often done quickly. This can be problematic, since it takes your brain up to 20 minutes to realize you’re full. If you eat too fast the fullness signal may not arrive until you have already eaten too much. This is very common in binge eating. By eating mindfully, you restore your attention and slow down, making eating an intentional act instead of an automatic one. What’s more, by increasing your recognition of physical hunger and fullness cues, you are able to distinguish between emotional and true, physical hunger. You also increase your awareness of triggers that make you want to eat, even though you’re not necessarily hungry. By knowing your triggers, you can create a space between them and your response, giving you the time and freedom to choose how to react.

How to practice mindful eating.

  • Eat slowly and don’t rush your meals.
  • Chew thoroughly.
  • Eliminate distractions by turning off the TV and putting down your phone.
  • Eat in silence.
  • Focus on how the food makes you feel.
  • Stop eating when you’re full.
  • Ask yourself why you’re eating, whether you’re truly hungry, and whether the food you chose is healthy.
