My Enlightened Delights


To enjoy good health,
to bring true happiness to one’s family,
to bring peace to all,
one must first discipline and control one’s own mind.
If a man can control his mind he can find the way to Enlightenment,
and all wisdom and virtue will naturally come to him.
— Buddha

The Mindful Diet Day 49

Week 7: Reinforce Mindful Eating

Day 49: Have another cheat day.

Today, try to be as mindless as possible at every meal. Chow down on a take-out lunch while you work at your desk; eat from the bag of chips as you watch TV tonight. Then, check in with yourself and compare this “cheat day” to the one during Week 1. “Odds are, your mindful-eating practices are so set in stone at this stage that your ‘cheats’ aren’t as enjoyable as they used to be,” says Kay.

Another fun cheat day. Today forget about all the mindful tactics we practiced over the past few weeks. Eat a mindlessly as you can and see how you feel returning to some old habits.
Enjoy yourself!
