"To study and at times practice what one has learned, is that not a pleasure?" Confucius
Reclaiming Our Power
Meditation is an ignored practice in the Western world. We gravitate towards the latest diet, purchase the most current technology, and listen to the new wave life coach trending at the moment. We do all of these things in the hopes of fixing ourselves or obtaining success. For many people, meditation is like vegetables; they don't like them even though we need them. So they don't eat them to their own detriment. If we don't meditate-we live half-a life.
Meditation is for the mind what food is for the body. Although we might not eat the right foods, we eat. But what about the mind. How do we ensure or cultivate a healthy mind? How do we stop our disturbing thoughts and emotionally cluttered way of living? How do we become conscious, mindful, and even enlighten?

Mindful eating changes our lives. It's the antithesis of fast food or eating on the run, and the all-you-can-eat phenomenon. We deserve to eat not in haste, but mindfully. What is mindful eating? According to Healthline mindful eating involves:
eating slowly and without distraction
listening to physical hunger cues and eating only until you’re full
distinguishing between true hunger and non-hunger triggers for eating
engaging your senses by noticing colors, smells, sounds, textures, and flavors
learning to cope with guilt and anxiety about food
eating to maintain overall health and well-being
noticing the effects food has on your feelings and figure
appreciating your food

Relax. Easier said than done. But a practice we must all learn. When we don't relax we're like a car that keeps idling. It never stops. Relaxing doesn't mean sitting in front of the television, or drinking a glass of wine. Ask yourself, how do you relax?
Do you use drugs? Listen to music? Eat? What do you do? Whatever you do, if it's not activating the parasympathetic nervous system-you're not relaxing.
You're doing something, but not relaxing. Our parasympathetic nervous system is also known as the rest and digest system relaxes us. When that's activated this is what happens inside:
Lower Blood Pressure
Increased Blood Flow to the Body's Major Muscles
Improved Mood and Concentration
Better Sleep Quality
