Raise your hand if you’re a part of the stand while you eat club… 🙋🏻‍♀️. I’ve noticed that I’ve been a “stand while I eat” breakfast club member for quite some time now. I will eat my breakfast as I make breakfast and lunch for my husband, prepare for clients or get ready for the day. Sometimes I’ve even grabbed my breakfast sandwich or smoothie to go and have eaten in the car! This prevented me from being present, calm and mindful in the mornings. So I decided to challenge myself to STOP AND SMELL THE ROSES (literally) every morning. I now sit. I calmly and peacefully eat my breakfast. I breathe and enjoy my surroundings. Sitting at the table helps me to be mindful of the taste, texture and smell of my food. It also allows me to enjoy my eating environment and start my day on a calm foot. . . Who else wants to step down from the stand while you eat club and join me in the mindful and peaceful breakfast club!? . . Here are a few mindful breakfast ideas: Sit at your kitchen table and get some fresh flowers Sit in front of a window to your backyard Sit in the backyard or on a balcony Lay a blanket / pillow on the floor and get comfy Buy a new, comfy breakfast chair and make a designated breakfast spot . . Tag a friend who you’d want to grab a seated and mindful breakfast with! #dietitian #intuitiveeating #breakfast #mindfulness #julienergynutrition

A post shared by Julie Rothenberg MS, RD, LDN (@julienergynutrition) on

I found this post by my wonderful nutritionist Julie Rothenberg in Instagram this month. It struck a chord in me about awareness and helped me through a day on which I felt angry and aggravated. I really didn’t want to feel that way, so I thought about why this was happening – and I realised that on that particular busy day, what was missing was some valuable “me time”. 

I was rushing from one appointment to the next, and I didn’t factor in enough time to just sit and be. I remembered Julie’s post and her experience about having breakfast in a rush while standing up. Only by slowing down and spending time with ourselves can we actually listen to what we need. 

Thanks for the inspiration, Julie!

My new friend and 3D content creator Biscuits was an inspiring force this month behind my latest 3D product SOUL REFLECTIONS for DAZ Studio. Her question lead to several new videos and something even more valuable: inspiration. Thanks for your support, Biscuits!
