Mindfulness Exercises:

  • Inhale the steam from the soup, allowing it to penetrate your senses.
  • Contemplate the labors of the farmer who grew and harvested the potatoes.
  • Eat just one piece of potato, then just a pea, then just a spoonful of broth, savoring each. Pause. Now enjoy all three at once. Contemplate the differences.
