We are all juggling many things in our day to day life. On a typical working day, when it comes to lunch, we quickly grab what we can, and eat in our cubes, while we surf on the internet.
But is this efficient?
Far from it. Our body absorbs all the vital nutrients in our food only when we pay single-minded attention to the appearance, texture, taste, and aroma of what we eat.
Try to find a company of good friends while eating in the office, but if you cannot, just choose to be in the company of your food instead of choosing to be distracted otherwise.
Eating with awareness will help you absorb the best of the food that is available to you and will be deeply satisfying.
Next time you are calculating if you have all the nutrients in your food, also question if the power of your awareness is helping you absorb them.
So bring awareness and savour every bite on a busy day even at work.
