A few months ago a friend of mine suggested this exercise to ease stress, by taking the time to prepare a healthy meal mindfully.
“A great way to comfort yourself after a stressful week is to make your absolutely favorite meal on Sunday. Buy all the ingredients you need at your favorite market or better yet, a farmer’s market. When you get home, concentrate on preparing your meal mindfully, focusing on each action and sensation. Enjoy every morsel of your dinner – with each mouthful feel the week’s tension ebb away.” – The Perfect Calm.
