its healthier & more economical than eating out long-term. Food can be medicinal. Better to be proactive & eat balanced, plant based meals than to pay for decades of toxic ingestion when we are too old & frail to assume the cost of our indulgences.

drifted into rumination, I would cycle attention over and over back to the breath or body. Attention not on the content or emotional charge of thoughts, but to the process of observation and letting go.

Such that the experience of wandering, noticing, letting go, reorienting and returning to the object of focus was primary- the thoughts were not, the wandering was not, the effort was not central to the exercise.
