Chocolate is often a go-to food for a little pleasure in the middle of a rough day. Chocolate when eaten moderately is full of benefits such as antioxidants. So perhaps you don't need to feel so guilty about your guilty pleasures. Maximize your little moment with chocolate by eating chocolate mindfully.
You can simply use your fives senses to enhance your chocolate eating experience by taking a little extra time to notice what your chocolate looks like, its smell, how it feels in your hands and in your mouth, the detail of the taste of the chocolate, and the sounds as you eat the chocolate, such as the sound of the first bite. We have a mindfully eating chocolate meditation for you in honor of National Chocolate Day. Enjoy!
