“The beginning of a habit is like an invisible thread, but every time we repeat the act we strengthen the strand, add to it another filament, until it becomes a great cable and binds us irrevocably, thought and act.” ~ Orison Swett Marden

When Was the Last Time You Really Stopped and Looked at the Food that was Right in Front of You?

When hunger strikes, usually our patience dwindles.  We feel our stomach twist and turn and rumble and moan so that it may be filled again – and we respond by trying to get food to it as fast as possible.  When we are finally able to get a meal, it isn’t long until it all vanishes from our plate – right before our eyes – and typically re-appears somewhere in the region of our stomach…  How that happens exactly?  Most of us don’t remember.

In his book Savor, Thich Nhat Hanh discusses the importance of being mindful while eating (and while doing most anything in life) so that a person may attain a healthier weight and a more fulfilling lifestyle.  One of the central practices he talks about is the idea of slowing down and being more present before, during, and after every meal.

“Control your inputs. Not just what you eat and drink (though this will have a profound impact), control what you read, what you watch, what you listen to, what notifications you allow on your phone, where you spend your time, who you spend it with.

“A man who procrastinates in his CHOOSING will inevitably have his choice made for him by circumstance. So if you now number yourself among the disenchanted, then you have no choice but to accept things as they are, or to seriously seek something else. But beware of looking for goals: look for a way of life. Decide how you want to live and then see what you can do to make a living WITHIN that way of life. But you say, ‘I don’t know where to look; I don’t know what to look for.’
 

And there’s the crux. Is it worth giving up what I have to look for something better? I don’t know—is it? Who can make that decision but you? But even by DECIDING TO LOOK, you go a long way toward making the choice.” ~ Hunter S. Thompson
