Mealtime – It’s Not Just About Food

It’s true, we need to eat to sustain our lives… however, the mealtime itself is just as important as what we are eating!

Sitting down to a good meal with friends and family is good for the soul!

Turning off distractions such as our cellphones or the TV creates a feeling of peace, thus allowing for conversations. This builds strong relationships!

And let’s face it, we live in a high-stress society, so having a peaceful, enjoyable meal is important! Not only do we nurture our relationships, but a peaceful mealtime also aids in our digestion and our mood!

Even when eating alone, turning off distractions allows our meals to be a time of rest and reflection… or a time where we can just simply sit somewhere and enjoy a pretty view!

Just the simple act of offering a prayer of thanks before we eat creates an ‘attitude of gratitude!’

So, with that said, I am going to pack a simple meal of chicken and fresh veggies, and find myself a beautiful view to enjoy!

Until next time,

Peace, love and safe travels!
