Slow down and enjoy the process of Life. One way to add peace to your life is to eat slowly. Enjoy the beauty of your food.
One of the best ways to slow down and appreciate your meal is with chopsticks. Using chopsticks lets you see the individual components of the meal as well as savor the flavor combinations. Also, chopsticks can help you take a slower approach to eat. Taking the time to chew and experience each bite will leave you feeling satiated and satisfied.
During the day, we don’t always have time to enjoy our meal. We have a coffee on the go, then a little snack while working, then a fast lunch. The routine takes away the pleasure of our mealtime.
Make a new ritual for yourself and for your family. Have a nice meal in a good company, enjoying every bite of it. It can be a good breakfast around your family, lunch with your co-workers with light chit-chat, or a coffee break just for yourself in silence. Thinking about what you eat during the process will help your digestion, will make you feel full faster, and will make you feel more satisfied with your meal.
Using chopsticks can be a little tricky at first, but once you get the hang of it, eating with chopsticks becomes fairly simple. Learning is part of life. Learning to use chopsticks is one aspect and if you want to expand your knowledge further, there is also chopsticks etiquette depending on which Asian culture you embrace: Chinese, Japanese, Korean or Thai. In fact, each of these cultures has a specific chopstick type that they prefer. But that is a topic for another time.
Thinking about the things you are grateful for makes you remember the moment you were thankful to someone. It is about seeing small details that make us feel better and understanding how easy it is to make someone a little bit happier. Today someone smiled at you, tomorrow you help an old lady to carry heavy bags, the day after that, that old lady helped a street cat. Do you see where this is going?
Being thankful will not only make you feel better, but it will also inspire the person you thanked.
Enjoy your process of life, whatever this day brings you! That’s all. So simple!
