Complete Mindfulness Through Nutrition

By Thomas Herd | September 7, 2018 | Lifestyle

Those who appreciate meditation know the joy and tranquility that mindfulness can bring about.

Mindful meditation is not about emptying your mind of thoughts. Instead, it is about letting yourself exist with all feelings, thoughts, and sensations, watching as they come by without judging or trying to prevent or encourage any particular impulse.

This practice of mindfulness frees one up to experience the world—in all of its sights, sounds, smells, and sensory stimuli—as it is truly unfolding around us. The ironic thing is that when we let go of trying to control our experience, we become fully present, in the moment, and more capable of handling everything that comes our way. Hence, mindfulness’ great appeal.

Contrary to popular belief, being mindful transcends just adopting the cognitive approach. Complete mindfulness also encompasses how we’re able to harmonize our physical bodies with the world around us. Nutrition, for instance, is a key area in which mindfulness plays an important role.

Knowing what your body needs in order to perform efficiently and sustainably is vital to maintaining a mindful lifestyle. When cardiovascular, digestive, and respiratory issues flare up, it is nearly impossible to remain present and focused. Your experience is colored through the lens of your affliction and your capability to simply exist in the present has to compete with the pangs of anxiety and urgent cravings for relief.


To avoid these impediments, it’s critical to be in touch with your body and know what will best promote a mindful and sustainable lifestyle. One functional beverage brand that has been specifically designed for those seeking a mindful approach to their everyday life is My Karuna.

My Karuna’s founder Angela Wang, a Ph.D. in pathology, set out to develop a superfood beverage line that would utilize natural, whole plant ingredients to detoxify our vital systems and restore balance, equilibrium, and natural vitality.

Infused with high concentrations of naturally occurring prebiotics and antioxidants, My Karuna distinguishes itself from traditional wellness drinks in that it catalyzes the digestive system to break down and seamlessly spread nutrients across the body, helping to sustain energy, vitality, and well-being at all times.

My Karuna’s prebiotic superfood beverage line spans tonics, whole plant smoothies, and juices to provide a wide range of daily essentials that you can rely on for harmonious and effortless body and mind presence.


Whole plant beverages packed with prebiotics and antioxidants, such as My Karuna, act as a powerful complement to the mindful cognitive approach and will give you the key advantage of always keeping your body in harmony with your mind and the world around it.
