A Small Share from the Book; What Are You Hungry For? By Deepak Chopra

Published December 1, 2013 by Stuff My Brain Thinks

Here is one really great exercise from the Book What Are You Hungry For?  By Deepak Chopra.  It is a wonderful way to become more self-aware, and self-awareness is the key to breaking any bad habit whether it be overeating, smoking or excessive drinking.

stop-pic

S-Stop what you are doing

T-Take one minute to breath consciously counting from 1-20 on each inhale and exhale.  For example exhale on 1 and exhale on 2, inhale 3, exhale 4 and so on.

O-Observe your body.  How hungry are you from a scale of 1-5.  Five being famished and 1 being not hungry at all.

P-Proceed with awareness.

  • I read your post & I just requested this from the library. It sounds great. I read a book Chopra co-authored (I think it was called The Shadow Effect or similar) and it really resonated with me.
