how to meditate with mindfulness

The goal of mindfulness is to achieve a deep state of awareness free of judgments about our sensations, feelings or thoughts, paying attention to what is happening inside us at every moment.
Mindfulness pursues a total attention to the present moment; recognizing our thoughts but accepting them without judgments, questioning our habitual mental patterns, our usual way of thinking. The objective is that the person can observe their thoughts with perspective, without immersing themselves in their content.
When to practice mindfulness? Everyone can practice mindfulness regardless of age or condition. It is recommended to start with short sessions of about 10 minutes to get used to the practice. If you exceed the indicated time at the beginning it can generate frustration by not being able to focus attention and seek evasion. Where can we practice mindfulness? The ideal is to practice mindfulness in an enclosed place, free of external noise, with a mild temperature and where we can be comfortable. It is recommended to wear comfortable clothes and to practice in a seated position, with a straight back and without tension.

With this in mind, it doesn’t seem crazy to think that mindfulness can help us maintain healthier eating habits in a simple way: by being more aware of what we eat. Before you get ahead of yourselves, relax, it doesn’t mean following a diet or having certain forbidden foods, it means enjoying more of what we are eating, savoring every bite and listening to our body, to know if it needs more or is already full enough.
One of the pioneers in this field is the psychologist Jean Kristeller, who treated young university students with obesity problems who ate large amounts of food compulsively (known as «binge eating»). Kristeller believed that his students had a dysfunctional relationship with food, and that their problem could not be solved simply by dieting. These young people needed to listen to their own bodies to know when they were full and should stop.
One of the exercises involved eating a few raisins, savoring them quietly, to demonstrate how this had the same effect as eating a whole packet quickly and without paying much attention. Obviously, it seems simple with raisins. The goal is that we should be able to apply this same premise to more tempting foods, such as cakes, chocolate or hot dogs.
