It’s 12:20 after midnight and I have just finished my vigorous workout. Now I’m starving. I go to the kitchen searching for something with protein to eat. I open the fridge stare at the food for a few seconds before I decide that there was nothing interesting to eat.
I shake my head in impatience then look around for more options. My eyes catch a loaf.
I grab a slice of bread, quickly spread peanut butter and squeeze some honey on top, sit on a small chair and start to take take a first bite and look at the space in front of me.
It’s complete silence. Everybody has gone to bed. I am sitting here all by myself. My phone is in my room. So there is no entertainment to pass the time. No Facebook. No Twitter. Weirdly though, I am enjoying it.
I do not remember the last time I sat in the kitchen in silence to just eat without doing anything else. They always say that women are multifunctional and I guess that’s right. I usually eat while I talk to someone, read a book or use my phone. The idea of eating alone has always both annoyed and scared me. Eating alone means food meditation and when you meditate you connect to yourself.
What happens when you connect to yourself?
Deep thoughts happen. Deep actions happen.
Time invested on your well being, is never wasted. It only took me one long romantic walk to the fridge to start a journey meditations with Deepak Chopra. It is one of the best things I ever did to myself. Sometimes small unexpected acts we do, could lead to big results. Bigger than you can imagine. Do not underestimate anything you do. Just put more love into it and enjoy the outcome.
