In this exercise, your students will learn how to eat mindfully. The example used is an orange, but it can be almost anything.

Here’s what to do:

  1. Start by holding your orange and rolling it in your hand, noticing how it feels.
  2. Hold the orange close to your nose and take a sniff. Think about what it smells like.
  3. Pay attention to what it looks like and what it feels like.
  4. Peel your orange mindfully, and stay present.
  5. Taste the orange, noting the flavor, the texture, the juiciness, etc.
