Living Our Best Lives, Together

Living Our Best Lives, Together

Four years ago, I created Journey Meditation with the mission of helping all people live happier, healthier lives. We set out to build a supportive and inclusive community, both online and off. With the launch of Journey LIVE, the world's first live group meditation app, we are harnessing the power of human interaction to help us improve our lives, while feeling more connected to ourselves and each other. Our mission to improve lives is guided by five simple yet powerful principles.

Mindful Eating: Savoring Meal Time

Mindful Eating: Savoring Meal Time

As a New Yorker, I get it — we’re busy. I’m a long distance runner, and know that sometimes food is only fuel — calories consumed to keep our bodies in movement. I’ve squeezed plenty of packets of electrolytes in my mouth while running, and for lunch today I microwaved a burrito while taking a conference call and reviewing train times for my next appointment. But I also love cooking and eating. And, news flash: mindfulness is not a speed, it’s an attitude of curiosity and compassion for whatever’s happening.

Mindful Eating is often thought of as the classic “slow eating of a raisin” exercise made famous by Thich Nhat Hanh and Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction training. It’s a wonderful way to pay attention to the subtleties of eating.
