I thought I was being mindful if alone by sitting at the table and mindfully eating BSD healthy meals, whilst reading a book on the iPad.
Mindful eating is in fact that strange thing of Just Eating.
Other mindful activities available include Just Walking, Just Meditating and Just Showering.
I had a bad case in a pre-BSD life of wondering, often out loud, what my next meal was, whilst consuming my current one.
Prof Mark Williams of Oxford tells a story of travelling to the West End to see a play and catching himself watching but not watching. He missed much since he was busy planning the trip home in his head.
