Do you remember the last time you savoured a meal, a piece of fine chocolate or a delicious smoothie? – Your mouth was watering, your taste buds rejoicing. Maybe your mouth is watering now, as you recall this joyful memory.
What if we could experience everything in life with the same rich, delicious intensity?
The good news is we can!
The bad news is we are pre-occupied most of the time: a worry, a thought, a distraction. Therefore, we don’t savour life like we savour a special treat on those rare occasions. However, you can choose to savour life everyday a little bit more. Some call it mindfulness meditation. It is a delicious way of becoming present right here, right now.
Begin with your breath:
- As you breathe in receive this breath of fresh air, as if you were drinking a delicious smoothie.
- As you breathe out enjoy the warmth of your breath.
- As you breathe in enjoy the feeling of your belly rising.
- As you breathe out enjoy the feeling of your belly relaxing.
One Mini-Retreat at a time you can savour all of life’s experiences just like you would the sight of a beautiful piece of art, the fragrance of a flower, the sound of a child’s laughter.
As you open yourself to savour, you really let life in. You allow all your cells to enjoy tastes, smells, sights and sounds.
Whenever you feel a little drained, begin by savouring one breath. This will help you reconnect with life, feeling the energy flow through you once again. The great news is that mindfulness meditation when savoured in small, delicious doses, doesn’t take any extra time. Enjoy!
