Blueberry Matcha Overnight Oats

Live less out of habit and more out of intent.

Life can be busy, so it is important to slow down, take a step back and reflect once in a while. 

Eating with intent and mindfulness is important. How many times have you found yourself finished a meal, absolutely stuffed and barely remembered tasting it? Mindful eating is about using mindfulness to reach a state of full attention to your experiences, cravings and physical cues when eating. Mindful eating includes: 

  • Eating slowly and limiting distractions (phone, TV etc.)
  • Listening to your physical hunger cues and only eating until you are full
  • Distinguishing between actual hunger and other types of hunger (emotional, boredom etc.)
  • Engaging all of your senses when eating by paying close attention to colours, smells, textures and tastes
  • Appreciating and enjoying your food

Challenge yourself to having at least one meal each day without distractions and practice mindful eating!
