In savouring, we take the small pleasurable experiences, the ordinary simple moments of daily life as a basis for Mindfulness. We learn how to use those moments to counterbalance the inbuilt tendency of the brain to veer towards the negative, unhelpful and fearful.
“We often lose the vividness of the present moment by
‘being somewhere else.’ When we are able to be
in the present moment, we become more awake
in our lives, more aware, with more choices open to us.”
Segal, Williams & Teasdale
