Mindful Eating Exercise
(To complete this exercise, please have a plate with grapes ready and click on the image to listen to the audio recording.)
You can repeat these steps with other foods such as a chocolate or raisin. You can also practice this skill during your meals as you eat the different foods on your plate. The more you practice eating mindfully, the more you will learn about your relationship with food and your body. Remember to minimize distractions during your practice and be fully present by paying attention to what you are eating and letting all of your senses experience the food before you swallow it. Remember to not judge your experience and remain curious.
After completing the exercise, take a moment to reflect on your experience:
How was this different from your normal way of eating grapes?
What did you notice during the exercise?
Any thoughts about how this skill might apply to eating or other areas of your life?
