Your Dinner Reservation Is Now Confirmed

Nov 9, 2007
The last time you were out with friends did you think of your time together as another of your usual recreational occasions? Well, if your friends are there with you at the time you read this question, your answer will probably be yes, am I right? But what would your answer be in case your friends were not present? I hope you would still respond to the question with a yes, because one of the most important recreations is times you have been spending with your loved ones, happened over a dinner table. If you attempt to dispute this statement by stating that these dinner events are so easy to organize and experience and that they should not be considered a typical recreation time, you would be wrong. Let me support my argument by stating some facts.

For millions of people around the globe, regardless of culture, religion, personal experiences, and behavior patterns, dinner time is considered the time to enjoy the outcomes of their daily efforts, a time to appreciate the fact that they are able to eat, pay for their food, support their family and take care of their own body and mind. But most importantly, with our contemporary fast-paced lifestyles, dinner time is the time to bond and exchange information and news. It is time for people to relax, let their senses guide them, and at the same time invest in conversing with family members, friends, colleagues, or even strangers. Even if you select to eat your dinner alone, appreciating the piece and quite this ensures after a heavy daily schedule, you have certainly made at some point dinner reservations at the restaurant of your choice, inviting friends to join you or enjoying a piece of meal prepared and served as it should. Do recreation and eating habits now seem a bit more connected?

According to scholars, dinner preparation along with the actual eating experience were greatly valued from ancient times, when people devoted a big portion of their day preparing and then tasting the outcome of their hard work. Except from the actual pleasure this type of eating experience may give to the taster, it is actually a very healthy habit, since we now know that the human stomach sends to the brain the appropriate signals that we are full and should stop eating approximately twenty minutes after this has occurred. Has your last meal lasted that long? Mine didn't! Thus, you should try to find those precious moments in your busy schedule and enjoy a fulfilling dinning experience surrounded by the people of your choice. Invite friends over, spend some time preparing the dinner you will serve and then take pleasure in dinning and conversing. This should be one of those recreational practices you should be really proud of repeating at least once every week.
