Digestion is one of the most vital but taxingly complicated processes the body performs. Unfortunately, for all its cunning, the GI tract is not a very good multitasker.

Simply take the moment to just be, mindfully experience the food and humbly give gratitude for its nourishment.
This week, I will consider making the effort to just enjoy a meal for itself. No distractions.
