  • Scoop your desired amount of food onto a dish of your choice.
  • Sit down in front of your meal. (Do not stand. You want to signal to your body that you are taking time to nurture it. Standing requires your blood to circulate to your limbs and other organs, which gives them priority over your digestion.)
  • Once seated in a comfortable position in front of your meal, inhale the aromas of your food and allow them to wash over you. (This process prepares the fluids and other factors in your body to become active so that food may be more easily broken down and assimilated. It also brings a sense of comfort and wellbeing to the body, thereby reducing stress.)
  • As you take your first bite, explore the food, and get as much out of it as you can. Savor the tastes, textures, and experiences. Try to identify the various flavors that are present. Pay attention to how the bite of food makes your body feel. Have any energy channels opened up? Does the food trigger certain emotions? Does it bring a deep sense of satisfaction?
  • When your food is as close to a liquid state as possible, swallow and pay attention to the sensations and tastes as it touches the various regions of your tongue.
  • While In-Joy, enjoy the rest of your meal.
