To help set healthy habits around dessert (or any food) bring more intention.
Spend time preparing it as an event rather than standing by the freezer with a spoon in the pint of ice cream. Making dessert a ritual instead of a knee-jerk reaction pulls you into the present moment and allows you to experience dessert with all of your senses.
Bringing Your Intention
Prepare the table by clearing the space, lighting a candle, turned off electronics, turn on music.
Be hands-on by elevating even simple desserts with elements of fresh fruit, dusting of spices and herbs, or serving on a special plate.
Invite your friends/family to sit and have a conversation. Conversation cards are great for this!
