Why is that happening again?

I thought I had finally left the bad habit of adding salt to my food without tasting it first.  I have slowed down my eating speed quite a lot and keeping my hands away from the salt shaker as much as possible, but I have caught myself adding salt more often, to food that does not really need it.

Yes, for some strange reason (maybe my body needs a little more sodium lately) My mind keeps bringing thoughts of salty food and, that constant desire for salt is pushing my hands to grab the salt shaker more often, maybe this is just a justification, but that is a habit I need to work on immediately before it causes a bigger damage.

“But you made me feel sad with the images you were showing me!” My conscious mind answered defensively. Continue reading

Awareness

One of the main issues of our modern world is that we are living so fast, so focused in our daily routine that we forget about our inner self.

Awareness is the key.  You can move your fingers, because you are aware of their presence in your body and because you know you can move them.
