Meditation is a great option if you are trying to lose weight. It allows for sustainable weight loss because you will be more in tune with your mind and your body. It’s a great option that helps with preventing emotional and stress related eating. You can start meditating by focusing on your breath, taking in deep breaths and holding it before exhaling. Do this for 5 to 10 minutes and let your mind basically turn off. Just relax and feel the sensation.
- One way to use mindfulness meditation to help your weight loss plan is to use the meditative techniques to focus on the act of eating.
- Chew slowly. Recognize how the food is making you feel, emotionally and physically. Learn to recognize when you are sated.
- Adopt a mindfulness stance when it comes to food choice mistakes and learn to forgive yourself for your slip-ups.
“Meditation, especially mindfulness meditation, can be a useful part of your weight loss plan.”
