Mind­ful Re­treats Around the Re­gion

CLEO (Singapore) - - CONTENTS -

Given our de­mand­ing sched­ules, it’s easy to be mind­less when we’re eat­ing. After all, why give your food your full at­ten­tion when you can watch an episode of Ter­race House while hav­ing lunch?

Well, it turns out mind­less eat­ing can lead to an un­healthy re­la­tion­ship with food; and the op­po­site ap­proach, mind­ful eat­ing, can make you more in-tune with your body and help you man­age your eat­ing habits bet­ter.

When you eat mind­fully, you give your food your un­di­vided at­ten­tion, savour­ing your meal and be­ing con­sciously aware of the way your food looks, smells, and tastes. This ap­proach en­cour­ages you to fo­cus solely on what you are do­ing in the mo­ment – ap­pre­ci­at­ing the tex­tures, flavours and ul­ti­mately un­der­stand­ing when you are full.

To hone in on your mind­ful­ness (and im­prove your eat­ing habits!), why not try th­ese mind­ful ex­pe­ri­ences that Asia has to of­fer?
