serendipity cookies – sweetness for the soul
Whenever you want to do something nice for yourself and would normally reach for something sweet as a reward, you can open a serendipity cookie instead. Written on the strip of paper inside the cookie is either a little reward that you’ve thought up yourself in advance, or a mindfulness exercise that lets you focus on the present moment and helps you be fully present.
Serendipity cookies help you interrupt the automated, subconscious action of reaching for a snack. They create space for you to consider whether you’re actually hungry (in which case sweets or snacks might not be the best choice), or whether it’s more like emotional hunger or stress and you actually need a short break from what you’re doing. And the serendipity cookie is right there with a suggestion for how to spend that break.
Special tip: You can increase the effect if you make a note of your serendipity cookie experience: write down your thoughts and feelings about the coaching questions or how you felt when doing the mindfulness exercises.
