Food for Thought
With our modern world becoming more and more food focused how do you see your own relationship with food?
Do you see food for purely what it is i.e. sustenance, only for basic human survival?
Do you see it as something that provides pleasure and joy?
Do you use it to help strengthen and build relationships aka ‘The Family Dinner’.
Escape: Are you filling an internal void with food?
Do you view it with an ease and a light heartedness?
Or perhaps you see it as a burden, a chore, a drama? Maybe there is more to it than that for you, maybe is deep and dark and a complete mental head funk.
I want to help free everyone from this inner mental turmoil of excessive food dialogue. This thinking is so disruptive to you life, not to mention your health. Don’t you want to be free from that?
Lately, I’ve been busy observing. Taking it all in. Being still and just listening. Listening to conversations at work, at the gym, with friends, overhearing talk in supermarkets, television shows around food, books, magazines and general chat. I’ve listened a lot. And what I’m hearing is that we are so very confused. Which in turn is leading us to over think everything food related. Which not only is mentally exhausting but also teetering on dangerous.
How long has this been going on for? How much time do you dedicate to thinking or perhaps obsessing about food? More than once a day? Only at meal times? Every few hours? A few times each hour? …. It’s all you can think about?
Depending on what level you are on the scale I want you to know its ok.
But where too from here? Perhaps it’s worthwhile beginning to listen to your own inner dialogue. What are you saying to yourself about food and how often? How are you making your meal choices? Or more importantly WHY are you choosing what you eat or what you don’t.
For now that’s it. Have a listen. Lets just start here and see what comes up.
