In this video, Collibrina demonstrates a meditative, focused, and calming approach to eating with mindfulness. Mindfulness is the art of savoring the present moment, so food will also be savored and enjoyed in the present moment of this video.
This practice uses an ASMR (Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response) technique, specifically the teacher whispers the entire audio of the practice for an especially soothing experience.
In the twenty first century, we spend far too much of our energy rushing through our daily routine. Living mindfully isn’t usually at the forefront of our priorities. We wake up early. Perhaps we exercise, or maybe it’s all we can do to get ourselves ready for work and get out the door. We commute for what feels like (and, sometimes, what is objectively) far too long. We sit in an office all day, tethered to deadlines and fixated upon our computer screen. We take a brief break, where we’re forced to eat as quickly as possible. We return home, again sitting in a ridiculous amount of deadlocked traffic. Finally, we arrive home. We’re often too tired to put any thought or effort into our evening meal. We opt for takeout, or a pre-cooked alternative. We practically inhale our food, exhausted as we are.
Breaking our habits
Notice the lack of mindfulness surrounding food in the above description. This way of engaging with food is unhealthy, and can lead to overeating, poor nutrition, bad digestion, and more. Fortunately, it doesn’t have to be this way.
To put it simply, it’s not in any way a given or an absolute that we engage with our food in such a passive, utilitarian manner. It’s perfectly possible to focus on our food: to concentrate on it, to appreciate it in all its variety and wonder, and to experience gratitude as we consume it.
Naked mindful eating meditation
In this video, you’ll be guided through eating mindfully in the nude. By savoring each bite, and attempting to be truly present and enjoy each bit of your meal, you’ll experience food in a different way. Your goal is to slow down and focus on the food in front of you. This will help you make more conscious choices about what you’re eating, whether it be first thing in the morning, on a break at work, or at the end of the day back home.
