Day two of my ‘Six days to simple mindfulness and relaxation’ – all about taste

So, here’s day two of my six days to mindfulness and better contentment – day two is all about taste, so let’s go…

I want you to think about everything that you taste today (obviously if you are blessed with the sense of taste)

Everything you eat or drink, whether it’s:

  • Coffee
  • Milk
  • Pizza
  • Fruit
  • Vegetables
  • Fizzy water
  • Wine
  • Orange
  • Mints
  • Crisps
  • Ice cream

The idea is that you take in ‘everything’ that you taste, in detail. (hopefully healthy stuff, despite my mixed list there!)

Really ‘taste’ everything and enjoy the flavour. Eat or drink ‘mindfully’

This can even be good for eating issues and can be a great comfort for us generally.

If it’s a drink, is it warm, cold or hot? Is it strongly flavoured or mild?

If it’s food, what texture is it? How does it taste? Is it delicious? If not, why not? Try something else.

Hopefully this is easy for you.

Really tasting our food, chewing it properly, enjoying it – it is all good for our digestion, our feeling of fullness, our comfort within, and it can be soothing and uplifting. So, just try to concentrate on what you taste today and I hope that you will enjoy it as much as I will, as I will do this too.

Catch you tomorrow, I hope, for some more simple ‘sense’ mindfulness techniques.

Amanda 🙂
