and the subtle movements that keep your balance. When you reach the end of your path, turn and continue walking, maintaining awareness of your sensations. Meal mindfulness. Before you start your meal, bring your attention inward by closing your eyes; begin to breathe slowly. After breathing, bring your awareness to the physical sensations in your belly. On a scale of 1 to 10, 1 is not feeling any physical sensation of hunger and 10 is that you feel very hungry. Ask yourself “How hungry am I?” What physical sensations tell you that you are hungry or not hungry (emptiness in stomach, shakiness, no desire to eat, stomach growling, etc.)? Try not to think about when you last ate or what time it is. Really listen to your body, not your thoughts. Eat according to your hunger. Take your first three bites mindfully, experience the taste, flavors, textures, and how much enjoyment you are receiving from a certain food. Make a mindful choice about what to eat based on what you really enjoy.
