Go Make Some Food
If you like to cook, this is a go-to move. (You’ve heard of procrastibaking, right?) Take 15-20 minutes and prep something now that future you will be so thankful for, whether that’s chopping vegetables for dinnertime or popping some banana bread in the oven for an afternoon snack. Taking a break not only feeds you something delicious, it can provide you with a moment of mindfulness and gratitude toward everyone who had a hand in bringing the food to your table—including yourself—for cooking it. Serena Poon, chef, nutritionist and reiki master, explains how cooking can shift your vibe. “The energy that you radiate while you cook will elevate the frequency of the dish. As you sit down to eat, give thanks for your food… As you eat, take slow, mindful bites, really savoring every flavor and sensation. After you try this practice, reflect on how it makes you feel. Do you feel energized and satisfied? Are you able to carry this energy into your day and into your life?
