My own current mindfulness strategies
Monday, March 30, 2020
I am very poor at this. Especially when I want to eat.
After the 24 weeks of the daily NOOM program, I have come to try to apply this:
NOOM TAUGHT ME:
MINDFULLNESS BEFORE EATING.
• WHAT AM I FEELING? H?A?L?T? HALT This is "emotional hunger")
• BODY SCAN to find any tension or pain
• HUNGER SCALE--rate my body hunger level
And the BEST WAY TO INGRAIN A NEW HABIT?
I have small reminder signs up in various places in the house.
Usually I eat watching TV or reading the newspaper or in bed with a book.
IT WILL NOT BE EASY TO CHANGE THIS PATTERN.
Yesterday I was successful only ONCE.
