I get ‘I have no idea how to meditate’ or ‘where the heck do I even start?!’

3 Simple Steps! What's an easy way to add meditation to your day? | itsjustabadday.com Helping chronically fabulous patients make lifestyle and dietary changes to their lives to help live their best life possible!1. When you sit down to eat, take a deep breath and center yourself in that moment. Realize where you are, what’s going on around you, what you’re about to eat!

2. Take a bite of your food and focus in on your senses. What does your food smell like? Taste like? Is it crunchy or soft or textured? Does it instantly bring up a memory for you? Take a few moments to enjoy that bite of food.

3. Take another bite and repeat! As you eat your meals, do it with intention of enjoying every single bite. Put away your phone, step away from your computer or TV and REALLY ENJOY YOUR MEAL! Isn’t that what we should be doing anyways? 😉

Seems too simple? Try it 😉 Over time this ‘simple’ activity will start to make you more in tune with ALL your daily activities. Start with dinner, then maybe move to something in the afternoon or perhaps focus in on the activity of brushing your teeth!

Wishing You A Pain Free Day!
