Can Eating Right Help You Meditate Better?

What you eat, can affect the kind of attention you are able to harness, your spectrum of focus, etc. Additionally, practising meditation also brings about a sense of mindfulness towards what and how you are eating. In the long run, this becomes a lifestyle rather a choice. Our gut and brain are connected to more ways than you can imagine. Your brain receives direct signals from your gut the moment food enters your mouth. Some of the basic digestion processes even start in the mouth. Actually, if you go deeper, even before putting food in your mouth, your brain processes it through the signals of sight and smell.
